AbstractThe purpose of this study has been to find out what attitude fifth graders have towards mathematics. This is done to get a better understanding of student’s feelings regarding about mathematics and what it is that makes mathematics fun or boring. My questions have been: What do the students think is fun, boring and difficult about mathematics? How do students think that a good mathematics teacher should be? Do the students see a difference in the mathematics teaching in easy compulsory school years?To find answers to my questions I have looked into prior research on students attitudes towards mathematics. I have also conducted group interviews with ten year old students.I was quite surprised to see what the attitudes of the students towards mathematics. I thought that it would be more students that thought that mathematics was a boring subject, but this was not the case. There are different factors that influence the student’s attitude towards mathematics. The factors that influenced the students positively were varied teaching, a committed teacher and peer-peer work.Things that can influence the students negatively are no variation in work, to hard problems to solve and exclusively working in their textbooks. Also the current emotional state of the students may influence their attitude towards mathematics, both positive and negative.Four key phrases:Student’s attitude towards mathematicsVaried teachingThe teacher’s role in teachingJoint work
