The Influencing Factors of Student’s Decision in Choosing Mathematics Education
This study aims to determine the significant factors that influence student’s decision chose mathematics
education. The sample in this study were students of Mathematics Education and Mathematics Programs. This research used
logistic regression. The independent variables in this research were aptitude and interest, job opportunities, capacity of
program, and social environment. Dependent variable of this research consisted of two categories: mathematics education
and mathematics. The logistic regression model is based on research that is:
1 2 3 4 ( )=-2,140+0, 010 g x x -0, 233x +0, 311x -0,080x . Job Opportunities and capacity of program are the significant
factors that effect on the student’s reasons choose courses of mathematics education.
