The aim of the present research was to determine the relationship of self-esteem and selfefficacy to mathematical anxiety in students. This is a correlation study. The population of this study includes all second-grade high school students of Ardabil enrolled in the 2009-2010 academic year. The research sample consisted of 480 male and female students who were selected through multistage random sampling. To collect data, a mathematics anxiety rating scale, selfesteem scale and self-efficacy scale were used. The results of Pearson’s correlation analysis showed that self-esteem and self-efficacy are positively associated with mathematical anxiety in students (p<0.001).
Multiple regression analysis showed cognitive selfesteem, academic self-efficacy and emotional selfefficacy to be the best predictor’s mathematical anxiety in students. Findings also revealed a significant difference between the mathematics anxiety of male and female students (p<0.01). Significant differences were also noted in the mathematical anxiety of students majoring in humanities and those majoring in science or mathematics (p<0.001).
