Abstract: Undergraduate students who are enrolled in social sciences programs, often have a negative perspective on mathematics courses. However, understanding these negative perspectives of students is necessary to help instructors in order to create a more positive attitude in such courses. The purpose of this study is to investigate the mathematics anxiety of the university students enrolled in on-campus and online education programs at the Faculty of Economics during 2010-2011 Academic Year. The sample used consists of the responses of 233 on-campus and 285 online students to “Mathematics Anxiety Rating Scale-Short Version (MARS-SV)”. Five anxiety factors for on-campus students and three anxiety factors for online students were identified by using factor analysis technique. Additionally, it was investigated whether mathematics anxiety variables differ according to the education type and gender.
