Abstract

The researchers employed a descriptive method in the study. The study sought to determine the relationship of math anxiety to sex difference and mathematics performance of students. The Mathematics Anxiety Rating Scale (MARS) was administered to the respondents followed by the evaluation of the MARS test taken. The findings reveal that there was no significant difference between math anxiety and sex difference. There existed no significant relationship between math anxiety and mathematics performance as measured by their grades in college algebra. Also, a significant relationship existed between female math anxiety and mathematics performance as shown by their grades in the same subject. It was concluded that there was no correlation between math anxiety and grades in college algebra among the male respondents. There was a moderately low positive correlation between the grades of the respondents in college algebra and anxiety in math. The researchers recommended that the De La Salle University should develop more programs that gear towards the reduction of math anxiety and create more activities related to the enhancement of mathematics performance
