MATO VAZQUEZ, María Dorinda  e  MUNOZ CANTERO, Jesús Miguel. ATTITUDE AND ANXIETY TOWARDS MATHEMATICS AND STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT IN SECONDARY EDUCATION: IMPLICATIONS FOR EDUCATIONAL PRACTICE. Cienc. Psicol. [online]. 2010, vol.4, n.1, pp.27-40. ISSN 1688-4221.

Diverse factors affect the mathematical apprenticeship. However, attitudes are considered one of the most influential variables in student academic outcomes. This paper presents an investigation on the effects of attitude and anxiety on mathematical achievement among secondary education students. Attitude and anxiety were assessed through two different scales in a sample of 1220 students. Data collected were analyzed using Pearson correlation and multiple regression analysis. The authors came to three fundamental conclusions: 1) Attitude showed a positive correlation with grades 2) Anxiety and performance were inversely correlated and 3) Attitude and anxiety were negatively correlated

Palavras-chave : Attitude; anxiety; factors; performance; mathematics.
