A STUDY ABOUT ATTITUDES TO MATHEMATICS IN PRIMARY SCHOOL

J.L. Martín Maldonado, M.M. Lopez Martin

University of Granada (SPAIN)
Student attitude and its impact on education has been an object of study for a number of academics in recent years. The main purpose of this study has been to corroborate and verify how students's attitudes towards mathematics deteriorate as they progress through academic courses. A positive attitude towards the subject can be observed in the early years of primary school, however this positivity starts to slightly decrease in subsequent years. Furthermore, it can be argued that attitude as a factor affecting educational outcomes, is more influential than the cognitive factor. In the wideranging concept of attitude, there are range of components that contribute to its origin and construction such as the strong influence of the context; including the school, family and the social context of the individual. In the same way, the existence of variation within the teacher’s perception of their students' attitude as they progress in the educational system impacts upon learner's attitudes.
