About this book

This book records the state of the art in research on mathematics-related affect. It discusses the concepts and theories of mathematics-related affect along the lines of three dimensions. 

The first dimension identifies three broad categories of affect: motivation, emotions, and beliefs. The book contains one chapter on motivation, including discussions on how emotions and beliefs relate to motivation. There are two chapters that focus on beliefs and a chapter on attitude which cross-cuts through all these categories. The second dimension covers a rapidly fluctuating state to a more stable trait. All chapters in the book focus on trait-type affect and the chapter on motivation discusses both these dimensions. The third dimension regards the three main levels of theorizing: physiological (embodied), psychological (individual) and social. All chapters reflect that mathematics-related affect has mainly been studied using psychological theories.

Reviews

“This pamphlet is a review of the research literature published in the last decade related to the four themes in the title. The authors use these surveys to discuss historical shifts in the way researchers have approached the themes, to point out gaps in the literature, and in some cases to advocate for future research directions. The intended audience is active researchers working with these themes, and I think it would help this group move their research agendas forward.” (Brian P. Katz, Maa Reviews, maa.org, October, 2016)
