Psychology of affect

Author(s): Amani Yamani

Abstract: Emotions form the composition of both our internal as well as our external environments. Emotions therefore play a role in every experience that we undergo; including the experience of learning. Studying the genesis of and role of emotions is the first foundation in understanding how emotions affect and direct our experiences; and in particular the experience of learning mathematics. The origin of emotions and their role in our survival will therefore be related to learning in general and mathematical learning in particular. In the study of emotion-mathematical learning experience, several theories have been proposed and studies carried out, to aid an adoption of an effective learning process for mathematical learners. These have been explored in this paper. Possible weaknesses of these models have also been explored. Ultimately, a possible relation between emotion, cognition and motivation has been analyzed. An effort to understand emotion as the first stage towards formation off attitudes and finally our beliefs; that define who we are in the end (which determines our success in mathematics) has been considered.
