Abstract: An online and horizontal approach was adopted, including an opportunity sample of 160 undergraduates from a university in Midland, UK. Exploratory factor analysis shows a simple four factor solution: abstract mathematics anxiety, statistical probability anxiety, statistical calculation anxiety and numerical calculation anxiety. The results support the previous evidence that there is a separate "number anxiety " or "arithmetic calculation " anxiety component in mathematics anxiety, and also support the existence of anxiety for more abstract mathematics. This is the first multidimensional study considering mathematical anxiety at the level of calculation type. The 26 item mathematical computational anxiety scale seems to be a useful measurement tool in the context of mathematical computational anxietyaths calculation specifically.
