鄭肇楨、黃毅英（Shiu-Ching CHENG & Ngai-Ying WONG）
The present study was undertaken to investigate the attitude towards learning mathematics among local secondary school students. 894 students from 26 schools were required to respond to a questionnaire which consists of 5 questions on the interest in learning mathematics, 6 questions on the attitude on learning mathematics and 7 questions on the difficulty encountered in learning mathematics. Correlations with mathematics achievement, expectations from parents and self were studied and multiple regression analyses reveal that interest in learning mathematics and difficulty perceived in the learning have strongest relation with mathematics achievement.
