Abstract: A research project entitled "Calculus Education at the Junior College and Tertiary Levels in Singapore" was begun in 1996 to study the current status of teaching and learning of calculus in Singapore. As part of the project, a survey was carried out to determine the general attitude of Junior College and Tertiary students' attitude towards mathematics in general and towards calculus in particular. This paper reports the findings of the part of the survey dealing with student attitude towards mathematics. In general, tertiary and junior college students who do Mathematics have a positive attitude towards mathematics in that very few of them have mathematics anxiety and majority enjoy mathematics. However, some of the findings of the students' view of mathematics and their approaches to learning mathematics give cause for concern.
