Abstract


The aim of study was to measure students’ anxiety toward mathematics. We utilized a Muñoz and Mato scale. Was surveyed 437 students face to face in the Instituto Tecnológico de Tierra Blanca, Veracruz, México. The statistical procedure utilized was the Factorial analysis with extraction of components. Statistics test to prove: X2, Bartlett test of Sphericity, KMO (Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin), MSA (Measure sampling adequacy) and Significance level: p<0.05 The results obtained from the Bartlett test of Sphericity KMO (0.881), X2 1758.251 with 10 df sig. 0.000 p< 0.01, MSA (ANSIEVAL 0.856a; ANSITEM 0.861a; ANSICOM 0.900a; ANSINUM 0.880a; ANSISIMA 0.942a) this means that the test Mato & Muñoz help us to understand the mathematics anxiety on undergraduate students.
