Ertekin, Erhan
Educational Research and Reviews, v5 n8 p446-454 Aug 2010
This study investigates the correlation between the mathematical beliefs and mathematics teaching anxieties of prospective primary education mathematics teachers. The investigation, which could be classified as a correlation study, has been conducted on 299 prospective teachers studying at the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades of one of the state universities in Turkey. As data gathering tools, "mathematics teaching anxiety scale (MATAS)" and "beliefs about mathematics scale (BMS)" have been used. As a result of the study, meaningful correlations were found between the "field training based teaching anxiety" and "attitude towards anxiety directed at teaching mathematics" sub-categories of the mathematics teaching anxiety scale (MATAS) and all sub-categories of the beliefs about mathematics scale.
