In this study, disposition is an independent variable and achievement in mathematics learning is a dependent variable. Mathematical disposition is a change of student’s tendency in assuming and behaving toward mathematics, also their act when learning mathematics. For example, when students can solve non-routine problems, their behavior and assumption of mathematics as a student become more positive.
