15 p. 
Summary

This study indicates that eighth graders have higher mathematics anxiety than eleventh graders, and boys have higher mathematics anxiety than girls. Eighth-grade classes with high mathematics anxiety tend to have high motivation in mathematics, but tend to see mathematics as not very useful in society. Both grade levels show a positive relationship between class mathematics anxiety and both friction and favoritism in the classroom, and a negative relationship between class mathematics anxiety and both class mathematics achievement and the perceived difficulty of the class.
