Attitudes in Mathematics
I think attitudes in a mathematics class have a major impact on the learning of mathematics. I always say that if a student allows the "door" to knowledge to be open, then I can get in! It is sometimes difficult for mathematics teachers to deal with the ideas and balance so many things about teaching. When I did my master's thesis, I investigated attitudes in mathematics classes.
I found two scales that can be used to measure attitudes. I have posted them on this site, since I have many requests for them. Hope you find them helpful!
