Teachers' Mathematics Attitudes as a Mediator of Students' Attitudes and Achievement.
Nolen, William F.; And Others
Aiken's Mathematics Attitude Scale (MAS) was administered to 70 elementary school teachers; achievement and attitude data were collected from seven randomly selected students of each teacher. Change in student attitudes and achievement during the school year were considered in relation to teachers' scores on the two subscales of the MAS; these subscales are Enjoyment of Mathematics and Value of Mathematics. Results indicated that students' attitudes and achievement were unrelated to their teachers' scores on the value subscale. However, there was a significant positive relationship between teachers' enjoyment of mathematics and students' achievement. (SD)
