Math Attitudes and Computer Attitudes among College Students.
Payton, Jacqueline; Loyd, Brenda H.
This study investigated the relationships among mathematics attitudes and computer attitudes. Approximately 105 college students were administered a questionnaire which assessed three dimensions of computer attitudes (anxiety toward computers, confidence in working with computers, and liking to work with computers) and three dimensions of math attitudes (math anxiety, math liking, and stereotyping math as a male domain). Results indicated significant positive correlations ranging from .31 to .45 between attitudes toward computers and attitudes toward math. (Author/MS)
