Studying of teachers’ self-efficacy and its sources is a relevant topic in the field of mathematics education. In this contribution we present a study about the relations between emotions towards mathematics and its teaching of pre-service teacher and their self-efficacy toward mathematics teaching. The paper describes an observational-correlational research on a sample of students enrolled in the “Scienze della Formazione Primaria” master degree. Results show the existence of a strong correlation between emotions towards mathematics and its teaching and the self-efficacy related to this subject. Hence, data are coherent with the idea of working on emotions of future teachers towards mathematics and its teaching to influence their self-efficacy. From collected data, we can also observe that emotions towards mathematics, both positive or negative ones, are correlated respectively to positive and negative emotions towards its teaching.

Abstract

Studying of teachers’ self-efficacy and its sources is a relevant topic in the field of mathematics education. In this contribution we present a study about the relations between emotions towards mathematics and its teaching of pre-service teacher and their self-efficacy toward mathematics teaching. The paper describes an observational-correlational research on a sample of students enrolled in the “Scienze della Formazione Primaria” master degree. Results show the existence of a strong correlation between emotions towards mathematics and its teaching and the self-efficacy related to this subject. Hence, data are coherent with the idea of working on emotions of future teachers towards mathematics and its teaching to influence their self-efficacy. From collected data, we can also observe that emotions towards mathematics, both positive or negative ones, are correlated respectively to positive and negative emotions towards its teaching.
