Dr. Ehtesham Anwar

Abstract :

 This study investigated the problem solving ability of secondary school students in relation to their attitude towards Mathematics. The students of class IX studying in secondary schools of Lucknow city constitute the population of the study. The sample consists of 250 students of Class IX from 6 different secondary schools of Lucknow. Null hypotheses were formulated to examine the relationship between problem solving ability and attitude towards Mathematics and to compare the problem solving ability of secondary school students having high and low attitude towards Mathematics. A marginal relationship was found between problem solving ability of secondary school students and their attitude towards Mathematics. It was also found that high or low attitude towards Mathematics has not any impact on the problem solving ability of the students. Therefore it can be concluded that if a student possess high or low problem solving ability, it does not necessarily possesses mean that his attitude towards Mathematics is also high or low.
