The Relationship of Achievement and Attitudes Towards Mathematics in the Elementary School: A Longitudinal Study.
Beattie, Ian D.; And Others
The purpose was to investigate changes in attitudes towards mathematics which occurred over a three year period in relation to mathematics achievement, sex, reading achievement, and I.Q. Scores were obtained for 120 fourth graders in a small school system through the use of an attitude scale (adapted from a School Mathematics Study Group (SMSG) scale) and through the regular school testing program. Results showed attitudes to be stable but differences were found in the relationship of attitude to mathematics achievement for boys and for girls. Attitudes towards mathematics were found to be less valuable for predicting achievement for boys and for girls. Attitudes towards mathematics were found to be less valuable for predicting achievement than other variables. (Author/DT)
