Factors Related to Mathematics Anxiety in the Secondary School.
Sandman, Richard S.
This study indicates that eighth graders have higher mathematics anxiety than eleventh graders, and boys have higher mathematics anxiety than girls. Eighth-grade classes with high mathematics anxiety tend to have high motivation in mathematics, but tend to see mathematics as not very useful in society. Both grade levels show a positive relationship between class mathematics anxiety and both friction and favoritism in the classroom, and a negative relationship between class mathematics anxiety and both class mathematics achievement and the perceived difficulty of the class.
