In this study we developed a model relating general self-esteem and mathematics achievement through basic intervening variables supported by social cognitive theory. A structural equation model was developed to examine the paths from mathematics achievement to general self-esteem and vice versa through mediating variables. The data, collected from 308 preservice primary school teachers, provided a good fit to the developed model, indicating an indirect reciprocal causal relationship between self-esteem and mathematics achievement.
