- Country : Nigeria
- Subject : Statistics & Mathematics
Mathematics anxiety component is there either in cognitive domain or affective domain or psychomotor domain of affected students. Its negative effects on academic performance; emotional stability and physiological build of those students therein can't be ignored but for us to clinically examine and provide, if possible, solutions. The research work then examines equal; individual; and joint effects of Mathematics anxiety factors on academic performance. It also investigates if indeed these factors have strong association with either the course of study or students' gender. From the results, those factors do not have the same effect on AP (Academic performance) but exert joint significant effect on AP. It is amazing that Mathematics anxiety is associated with the choice of course of study by students but independent of students' gender.
