This bulletin provides an overview of research studies which relate to student attitudes and interests in mathematics at the elementary school level. The studies included pertain directly to the following questions: (1) Do elementary school pupils like mathematics? (2) How important are attitudes and interests in mathematics? (3) Does a more favorable attitude, or greater interest, lead to higher achievement? (4) How important are teachers' attitudes and interests in mathematics? (5) What is their relation to pupil attitudes and interests, and to pupil achievement? (6) What is the attitude of pupils toward the new program? (7) What affects attitudes? (8) Can attitudes be improved? A list of selected references is supplied at the end of the paper. (FL)
