Güneş Yavuz

Abstract


The purpose of this study is to analyse the level of prospective classroom and mathematics teachers’ anxieties about teaching mathematics. Freshman and junior prospective teachers from educational faculties of two different universities participated in this study. “Anxieties About Teaching Mathematics Scale” which was developed by Peker (2006) and “Personal Information Form” which was developed by the researchers were adapted to determine prospective teachers’ anxiety levels about teaching mathematics. After collecting data, correlations between anxiety levels of prospective teachers and different variables such as their majors at university, their grade levels, the type of high school that they were graduated, gender and attitudes of their family were examined.  Average scores, t-test and variance analyses were used in data analyses and scheffe test was employed when necessary.
