This project studies the impact of affective factors in students’ learning in the natural sciences and mathematics.

How the students’ feelings about and relationship to the subject of mathematics affects their learning, and any further studies and career paths within mathematics and the natural sciences. One part of the subproject studies the impact of affective factors on students and on their behaviour in relation to mathematics. What are the reasons for the possible onset of fear of mathematics and how can this anxiety be combatted and reduced?
