Abstract: This study, drawing on data from the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2007, examined the influences of self-perceived competence in mathematics and positive affect toward mathematics on mathematics achievement of adolescents in Singapore. Ordinary least squares (OLS) regression analyses revealed the positive influences of selfperceived competence in mathematics and positive affect toward mathematics on mathematics achievement of adolescents in Singapore. Implications of the findings for policy and practice are discussed.
