    Abstract:
    This study was designed to investigate secondary school students’ perception of their teachers’ attitude towards them in the learning of mathematics. The study adopts a survey research design on a sample of 242 Senior Secondary School Two (SSS2) students randomly drawn from a population of 1210 SSS2 students in Wukari Metropolis, Taraba State, Nigeria. The analysis of data obtained via the researcher-developed questionnaire indicates that teachers have displayed negative attitude towards their students in the learning of mathematics. The results implied that students’ mathematics learning is highly influenced by the actions and inactions of the teacher, consequently building in them wrong disposition towards the subject. Based on the findings of this study, it was recommended that students’ evaluation of their teachers’ teaching should be considered as one of the main tools for evaluating teachers’ teaching and effectiveness.
