Abstract
There seems to be a connection between students’ general perception of mathematics as irrelevant and isolated from other subjects and a schema or algorithmoriented approach to mathematics. Such an approach to mathematics is related to negative beliefs about mathematics (Grigutsch, 1998), and combined with the apprehension that good mathematical skills are a sign of intelligence, the schemaoriented approach can even be connected to low selfefficacy or selfesteem in mathematics (Malmivuori, 1996). By combining the Autonomous Learning Behavior Model (Fennema, 1989) and the Cycle of Mathematics Avoidance (Preis & Biggs, 2001) in the Model of SelfReinforcing Effect of Negative MathematicsRelated Beliefs, I present how negative beliefs about mathematics can be selfreinforcing. I therefore argue that it is essential to focus on the development of students’ beliefs in mathematics education, particularly about mathematics as a discipline, in order to enhance the students’ apprehension of the role and use of mathematics in the world and to nemphasize the interdisciplinary possibilities of mathematics. Working with mathematicsrelated beliefs as a goal can provide the relevance and motivation for students to change their negative beliefs about mathematics as well as broaden their perspective in other subjects.
