ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The focus of this study was to examine the attitudes, experiences, and opinions of adult math students in Adult Basic Education programs. Sixty students participated in the study, by completing observations, questionnaires, and completing the Attitude Towards Mathematics Survey (ATMS). The ATMS survey analyzed four factors. These factors included self-confidence, value, enjoyment, and motivation. This mixed methods study examined the performance of students in both traditional and non-traditional learning environments. The non-traditional learning techniques were aimed at enhancing the attitudes, achievement, and perceptions of adult math students.
