Proceedings of the 5th SEA-DR (South East Asia Development Research) International Conference 2017 (SEADRIC 2017)
This research aims to determine students' success in mathematics and its relationship with the attitude toward numeracy learning. This research was held at the SDN Cindai Alus 1 Banjar district Academic year 2015-2016. The research lasts for three months from January until March 2016. The method used in this study was a survey correlation technique. The target population of this research was all students of SDN Cindai Alus 1 Banjar.

... h lesson. The total sample as a whole was 60 students. The instruments to retrieve the data were in the form of questionnaires and documentary. The aspects of students attitudes toward math lessons that were observed in this study includes cognition, affection and conation. The results showed that: (1) the value significance of students' attitudes toward math was greater than a 0.05 which was 0.56 and normally distributed; (2) the variance of the relationship between students' attitudes toward math lesson with students success in mathematics expressed linearly with F count < F table (2,626 <4:00); (3) there is a significant relationship between students' attitudes toward math lesson with students success in learning math in elementary school where R count > R table (0423> 0254); and (4) the more positive students attitudes toward math lesson, the higher the students' success in learning math.
