Rethinking Undergraduate Mathematics Education: The Importance of Classroom Climate and Self-Efficacy on Mathematics Achievement
Peters, Michelle Lynn; Kortecamp, Karen
Current Issues in Education, v13 n4 2010
Given the growing societal demand for a more mathematically proficient work force, mathematics proficiency is viewed as a necessary component for success in today's world. To ensure proficiency, undergraduate institutions may need to "rethink" their instructional approaches to teaching mathematics. Understanding the influence of classroom climate and self-efficacy on mathematics achievement may lead to instructional practices that increase the percentage of students choosing to pursue mathematics related majors. This literature review synthesizes research that has empirically examined the influence of classroom climate and self-efficacy on mathematics achievement. This review also offers recommendations for future research and policy in the area of undergraduate mathematics.
