ab: Summary: Three hundred-one pre-service teachers enrolled in elementary
teacher education program were administered two surveys to measure
mathematics anxiety and mathematical beliefs. Results of the study
revealed that there were significant differences between third year and
fourth year pre-service teachers regarding their mathematics anxiety
and mathematical beliefs. They held strong beliefs about teaching and
learning mathematics that were aligned with the teacher education
program. The results suggested that the pre-service teachers who held
stronger beliefs and felt less anxious were more confident about their
abilities to teach mathematics effectively. Thus, the significant
relationship between mathematics anxiety and mathematical beliefs
should be acknowledged.
