Abstract: 
This research was conducted to investigate the comparison of mathematics self-efficacy beliefs of male and female students of math-physics, experimental science and human science fields of study, and its relationship with gender, academic fields of study, prior math achievement and goal setting. 400 male and female sophomore students, from three fields of study (math-physics, experimental science and human science), were selected randomly from Ahvaz high school. The Mathematics Self-efficacy and Goal Setting scales were administered to the subjects. The reliability coefficients (Cronbach Alph and Split-Half) and validity of the scales were satisfactory. The results of factorial analysis of variance showed that there were significant differences between male and female, and between the three fields of study, in the mathematics self-efficacy beliefs. Also the results of simple correlations showed that mathematics self-efficacy was related to gender, goal setting, academic fields of study and prior math achievement. Finally, multiple regression coefficients, using step-wise method, showed that all of the above mentioned variables predicted mathematics self-efficacy beliefs.
