Abstract

Mathematics anxiety is an uncomfortable feeling that is linked to fears and worries in dealing with specific situations related to mathematics. This study attempted to explore the association between the junior high school students’ online learning readiness and mathematics anxiety on the use of technology in mathematics learning. This study adopted descriptive research design to answer the problems posed. Results showed that the students have a moderate level of both their readiness in online learning and anxiety on the use of technology in mathematics. The students’ expectation toward online learning in mathematics was found to have an influence on their anxiety in the cognitive aspect. Students’ expectations are also found to significantly predict their anxiety on the use of technology.
