The purpose of this paper is to investigate the differences of the mathematics anxiety and mathematical achievement of high school students according to math socialization, and to find out which mathematics anxiety causes have more influence on mathematical achievement and how much it is. For this purposes, the problem of this study as follows: firstly, are there any relationship among mathematical grades, mathematics anxiety, interest and math socialization? secondly, are there any math socialization mathematics predict to mathematical grades, mathematics anxiety, interest? lastly, are there any differences in the mathematical grades, mathematics anxiety, interest according to math socialization level? The subjects of this study consist of 479 students selected for a class of unit, in high schools located in Seoul and metropolitan area, Korea.
In this study, for students math socialization, Jung(2002)'s scale was used. Mathematical anxiety & interest, Huh(1996)'s Mathematics Anxiety Scale was used. The collected data were analyzed by using the 24.0 SPSS program. The data were also tested by using the t-test, pearson correlation and multiple regression.
The major results of this study were as follows: firstly, math socialization, mathematics anxiety, interest and mathematical grades have significantly related each other, secondly, the multiple regression analyses demonstrated that sub factors of math socialization were the significant predictors of mathematical grades, mathematics anxiety and interest, lastly, mathematics grades, and mathematical anxiety and interest have significant differences depending on math socialization.
