Mathematics plays a crucial role in enhancing individuals' understanding of science, facilitating studying, and developing critical thinking skills. Mathematical practice fosters critical and creative thinking, improving comprehension of various topics and equipping individuals for work and daily life. This study aims to investigate the attitudes of grade 5 and 6 students towards mathematics, examining differences in attitudes between male and female students and within grade levels. The results reveal that male and female students exhibit comparable levels of concern with no significant differences in attitudes towards the subject. However, fifth-grade students demonstrate greater positive attitudes and self-confidence in mathematics than their sixth-grade counterparts. This difference is statistically significant (p-value < .05) and could be attributed to the educational transition from primary to lower secondary level. This finding should be taken into consideration by relevant parties. For future studies, we recommend a mixed-method approach with larger sample sizes.
