The purpose of this study was to investigate the differences of pre-service elementary school teachers' attitudes towards mathematics according to their learning styles. Two hundreds eighty one pre-service elementary school teachers were involved in this study. The researchers employed two types of instruments, Learning Style Inventory and Scale of Mathematics Attitude Questionnaire, to collect the data. The learning style inventory was designed to detect the participants' learning styles, Divergent, Assimilator, Convergent, and Accommodator, and the scale of mathematics attitude questionnaire was used to find the participants' attitudes towards mathematics. After the collection of the data, the researchers run the one-way ANOVA to show the attitude differences based on the learning styles. The study concluded that there were statistically significant differences found between the attitudes of learners, convergent and assimilator, and that the convergent learners had more positive attitudes towards mathematics than the assimilator learners.
