Abstract: 
This paper describes the process of developing a survey instrument aimed at measuring
aspects of mathematical confidence, value, and the interconnectedness of mathematics as
part of a larger study investigating the thinking processes and attitudes towards mathematics
of Singaporean secondary school students (aged 12-14) during interdisciplinary learning.
Results from exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses on scale items tested revealed six
scales with sound validity and reliability properties. The scales are intended for measuring
attitudes towards mathematics particularly during interdisciplinary education.
