ab: The present study examines the structure of students’ beliefs about
mathematics teaching. It addresses two main questions: (a) What is the
nature of students’ belief systems about mathematics, and how are the
components of belief systems related to each other? (b) Are there
differences in the structure of students’ beliefs in terms of gender
and grade level? These questions are addressed by estimating a
theoretically informed multivariate causal model using data from
students in grades 6 and 9 as input to the EQS computer program.
