Abstract:

The purpose of this research, is to offer the adaptation of an instrument that assesses attitudes towards mathematics [1] for the context of sports competitions. In two rounds (R1 and R2) with a total of 60 participants of both sexes we perform a adaptation for the instrument used is a scale that seeks to ascertain both positive and negative attitudes towards mathematics, that is, whether the participant likes mathematics or not, so we adapt it to sports competitions, trying to find if the youth sports participants have positive or negative attitudes to sport competition, and in this way testing the internal consistence for the instrument. The results show an excellent performance of the internal consistence (Cronbach's Alpha Coefficient) of the instrument, both to positive by the negative issues, and a tendency to positive attitudes in sport competition.
