Correlates of Mathematics Anxiety.
McCoy, Leah P.
Learning is a complex operation that involves a several factors. In studying the learning process, both the characteristics of the learner and the conditions of instruction must be considered. This study examined some of the factors that may influence the learning of mathematics. In particular, it sought to identify relationships among mathematics anxiety, individual preferences for learning styles, and use of manipulative materials in learning activities. Reported in this paper are a brief literature review, research methods, results, and educational implications. Results of this study indicate that there is a significant relationship among mathematics anxiety, tactile-kinesthetic mode preference, and experiences with manipulative materials. (CW)
