Actitud Hacia las Matematicas: Revision Bibliografica (Attitudes Toward Mathematics: Revised Bibliography). Publication No. 39.
Rodriguez Feijoo, Nelida
Investigations about attitudes toward mathematics carried out in the past decade were revised. The instruments used to measure attitudes toward mathematics were analysed as well as the attitudes toward different aspects of mathematics, their relation with other school subjects and their stability through time. Opinions about the influence of variables such as: teacher's attitudes, sociological characteristics and personality factors are presented. The possibility of predicting achievement in mathematics through the measurement of attitude toward this subject is discussed. The result of applying new teaching methods in order to improve existing attitudes was considered. (Author)
