1.0 Introduction1.1OverviewEvery subject taught in school during a student’s educational process, are extremelyessential for the future of that particular student. Therefore, it is a very heavy job onthe teachers to deliver these subjects in a manner that the student`s would be involvedin them. However, as a teacher, I have seen some student`s attitude towards somesubjects which are not very positive. There may be several reasons behind this. Inorder to identify this problem and to understand the reason behind this change inattitude, I have selected to research on the impact of attitude towards Mathematics onstudent’s academic achievement in Mathematics.From the very beginning, when gaining knowledge was understood to be beneficialfor a person, Mathematics was taught in the Maldives with Arabic and Dhivehi. Thiswas before schools and educational centers where built. In the old text books, whichwas followed until recently, teachers explain the questions which are provided in thebook and answers them by looking at the book. However, the new text books aredesigned for the students to conceptualized and find the answers for themselves withthe guidance of the teacher.This research will be a good tool for the management of the schools, teachers andeven the parents to understand the issues behind student’s overall attitude towardsMathematics, why students achieve low on this subject and the relationship betweenthe student’s attitude on Mathematics and the students’ academic performance.This research will be a qualitative and a quantitative research.
1.2BackgroundThe target group of the research are the Grade 7 students of H. DH KulhudhuffushiAtoll Education Center(AEC). From 1979, H. DH Kulhudhuffushi Atoll EducationCentre (AEC) has been successfully educating many young minds under the sameroof, from grade 1 to grade 7, and recently they have incorporated pre-school agegroup to the school.According to the leading teacher of grade 7, the performance of students onmathematics is very low.Mathematics is a compulsory subject for all the students at the school just like all theother government schools.The school does not hold special programs on Mathematics specifically, however, theschool helps out students in every subject that the student is weak by conductingremedial classes.1.3Need for the studyMathematics is one of the main areas of studies where it is taught as a subject in theschool levels. My personnel experience as a students and also as a teacher have givenme a very good insight of the issue of student’s attitude on mathematics. Manystudents dislike the mathematics class, but the exact reason for this attitude can beseveral. It can be due to their past experience or past results of mathematics, pressurefrom the parents to achieve a higher mark, or maybe due to the teacher’s poor deliveryof the subject. The International Electronic Journal for Mathematics Education(IEJME) states that, anxiety caused by mathematics can be experienced to such adegree that children might perceive their performance in mathematics as to their self-confidence[ CITATION Ful08 \l 1033 ].
