Kaldo, Indrek; Reiska, Priit
Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, v31 n2 p95-105 Jun 2012
This article investigates the attitudes and beliefs towards studying mathematics by university level students. A total of 970 randomly chosen, first year, Estonian bachelor students participated in the study (of which 498 were science students). Data were collected using a Likert-type scale questionnaire and analysed with a respect to field of study (science and non-science). Results of this study show that science students have a more positive attitude towards mathematics.
