## Abstract

This study examined the influence of traditional classroom lecture compared to a flipped classroom approach on math anxiety and math achievement in a required undergraduate mathematics course for students in the elementary education program. Pre-course and post-course math anxiety surveys suggested that students in both sections significantly decreased in their levels of math anxiety. However, correlational analyses of the post-course math anxiety survey and the final exam grade showed a significant inverse relationship for the traditional class that was stronger than that of previous research. In contrast, no correlational relationship was found between math anxiety and final exam grade for students in the flipped classroom.
