Abstract

Factors that influence gifted 17 years old students' attitude towards mathematics taught at school were analyzed. 30 students were selected based on their latest examination grades. Questionnaires of 18 questions were given out of which 13 were multiple-choice questions and five were free response questions. It is found that teachers' attitudes and personalities can influence the students to be more inclined towards mathematics, followed by exposure of application of mathematics in daily life and students' grades.
