Mutohir, Toho Cholik; Lowrie, Tom; Patahuddin, Sitti Maesuri – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
This study aimed to develop a survey instrument to measure student attitudes towards mathematics teaching-learning processes that is appropriate for the Indonesian context. This study consisted of two phases: Phase 1 (n = 320) was a pilot study to assess the suitability of the instrument items for Indonesian students. Phase 2 (n = 1001) was…

Kiwanuka, Henry Nsubuga; Van Damme, Jan; Van Den Noortgate, Wim; Anumendem, Dickson Nkafu; Vanlaar, Gudrun; Reynolds, Chandra; Namusisi, Speranza – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2017
This study investigated the effects of student and classroom characteristics on math self-confidence, perceived usefulness, and enjoyment of mathematics as multiple outcomes. A sample of 7th-grade students from 78 classes of 49 schools was studied. The data were collected using, among other instruments, an attitude questionnaire. The results of…

Norton, Stephen – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2017
The importance of actively engaging in mathematics discourse in order to learn mathematics is well recognized. In this paper, I use Basil Bernstein's concepts of pedagogic discourse to document and analyse academic learning time of students in Years 8 and 9 at a suburban lower secondary school: in particular, for what proportion of class time…

Flanagan, K. M.; Einarson, J. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2017
In a world filled with big data, mathematical models, and statistics, the development of strong quantitative skills is becoming increasingly critical for modern biologists. Teachers in this field must understand how students acquire quantitative skills and explore barriers experienced by students when developing these skills. In this study, we…

Haciomeroglu, Guney – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2017
This current study examined the reciprocal relationship between anxiety and attitude towards mathematics in elementary students. Two instruments (attitudes towards mathematics inventory short form [ATMI-Short Form] and the Revised Fennema-Sherman Mathematics Anxiety Scale [Revised-FSMAS]) were administered to 310 fourth grade elementary students.…

Ren, Lixin; Green, Jennifer L.; Smith, Wendy M. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2016
The Fennema-Sherman Mathematics Attitude Scales (FSMAS) are among the most popular instruments used in studies of attitudes toward mathematics. However, the FSMAS has been mainly used among student populations and rarely used with teachers. In the present study, three scales from the FSMAS--"Confidence," "Effectance…

Köse, Emek; Johnson, Angela C. – PRIMUS, 2016
In this article, we present a case study of a course called Women in Mathematics. Students in the course studied the lives and the mathematical contributions of women mathematicians throughout history, as well as current gender equity issues in the study of mathematics and in mathematical careers. They also mentored 20 middle school girls…

Yáñez-Marquina, Lara; Villardón-Gallego, Lourdes – Electronic Journal of Research in Educational Psychology, 2016
Introduction: In secondary education, students' low achievement and engagement in mathematics are closely related to their attitudes towards the subject. Despite the international body of research, an exhaustive literature review of the existing instruments for measuring it draws attention to the inconsistency in the definition and corresponding…

Henrich, Allison; Sloughter, J. McLean; Anderson, Jeffrey; Bahuaud, Eric – PRIMUS, 2016
In this paper, we share the results of our recent study of a quantitative literacy course with a service-learning component. Our study aims to answer the question: How did student attitudes shift as a result of participating in this course? We present and analyze statistics from pre- and post-surveys in five classes (N = 78) taught by two…

Thompson, Ross; Wylie, Judith; Hanna, Donncha – Psychology Teaching Review, 2016
Due to the empirical nature of the discipline, psychology students, during the course of their degree, are required to become proficient with a range of quantitative methods. Unfortunately many of these students experience high levels of maths anxiety, which can have a damaging effect on this aspect of their educational development. The first…

Ransome, Myrna; Mohamed, Musa El Sharief; Bridgemohan, Puran – World Journal of Education, 2016
The colonial fallacy that only a few persons are endowed with the capabilities to conceptualize mathematics, coupled with the belief that society equates mathematical ability with intellectual superiority, have contributed to low levels of mathematical self-concept and achievement among some students of mathematics. Some of these students are…
