This mixed methods study investigates factors that affect college students attitudes toward mathematics as well as what may be done to reverse or prevent poor student attitudes in the future. Ninety-nine college algebra students completed a retrospective quantitative survey in order to amass numerical data and guide interview choices. Twenty-three of the ninety-nine students were interviewed to gain in-depth knowledge of what factors affect their attitude as well as suggestions on improving these attitudes.-From this study, student attitudes are most affected by four external factors: the teacher, teaching style, classroom environment, and assessments and achievement.

Additionally, one internal factor, individual perceptions and characteristics, also affect student attitudes. It is suggested that educators can affect the four external factors in order to influence the internal factor and, in turn, student attitudes.
