dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of an Ancient Chinese Mathematics Enrichment Programme (ACMEP) on pre-university students’ attitudes towards mathematics. A total of 37 students took part in this study and a mathematics attitudes scale was administered prior to and after the ACMEP which consisted of 4 sessions of one hour duration each, held once a week, conducted during curriculum time. Results of statistical analysis revealed that the post-ACMEP mathematics attitudes survey overall mean score was higher (t = 1.99, df = 31, p = 0.06) than that of the pre-ACMEP mathematics attitudes survey, with an effect size of 0.40. Overall, the conduct of the ACMEP appeared to improve pre-university students' attitudes towards mathematics.en_US
