Purpose of Study
We are conducting this research on maths anxiety, to understand how the rewards and probability of success affect whether people attempt maths problems. This research will highlight the causes of maths anxiety and suggest better teaching methods that could be used in a school setting. It would be very helpful to our research, if we could gather data from what you can remember from your time at school, when taking part in maths, in order understand the factors that affect how confident people feel doing maths.
We ask that you complete the questionnaire as honestly as you can. All of our questions will only be targeting our stated research aims.
