Education is currently one of the most important development aspects in Saudi Arabia. The government of Saudi Arabia under the instruction of the custodian of the two Holy Mosques King AbdullahAl-Saud, has allocated enormous budgets for citizens education within the kingdom and abroad. The number of Saudi universities has increased dramatically from 10 universities in the year 2000 to 42 universities in the year 2021(30 Governmental Universities and 12 Private Universities) plus 13 separated Governmental and Private colleges and 7 Military colleges. For engineering colleges in Saudi universities, math representsone of the most important basis of engineering studies. Students need to be versed in this subjectto be able to master any engineering dispense. Although math is taught to all Saudi students starting from elementary school, several academic staff and students acknowledge the weakness among students in this subject, specifically noticeable at college stage. Furthermore, they recognize the implications of this weakness on the study of most engineering courses. This study aims to explore factors contributing to weak math skills in Saudi engineering undergraduate students and their influencing on the students? study achievements. It considers the Engineering College ? Rabigh Branch ? King AbdulAziz University as a case study for this research work.
