Affect is a research topic in the field of mathematics education which focuses on the role of emotions in mathematical thinking and problem solving. Affect variables are viewed as learning outcomes. The practice of teaching and learning mathematics, and associated scholarly research in this field is termed as mathematics education. It focuses on conceptual understanding, formative assessment, algebraic reasoning and problem solving. Some of the objectives of mathematics education are teaching basic numeracy skills to students, and teaching practical mathematics, abstract mathematical concepts, advanced mathematics, etc. Classical education, computer-based mathematics education, conventional approach, exercises, and problem solving are a few methods of teaching mathematics. This book presents researches and studies performed by experts across the globe. It explores all the important aspects of affect and mathematics education in the present day scenario. Researchers and students in this field will be assisted by this book.
