In this study we developed a model relating general selfesteem 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 selfesteem 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 selfesteem and mathematics achievement.
