Abstract

Background: This article aims to discuss and investigate forms of pedagogical knowledge of mathematics
instructors and influence of their educational beliefs on their students during Coronavirus disease where
progress in learning is typically influenced by self-confidence and anxiety.
Materials and Methods:A study survey was carried out to find out the extent of anxiety and self-efficiency
students have before and during mathematics exams in distance learning.
Results: Out of 252 students, 88% are females and 12% are males, majority of students of the second
level from different faculties filled the survey. The study reveals student’s responses to the levels of the
variables where confident is of ‘always’ attitude with mean 2.3714 (SD=.37764). On the other side, anxiety
is of ‘sometimes’ attitude with mean 1.8595(SD=0.4196). Those results are good and indicates that no big
problems in mathematics either inside or outside university faced by sample we dealt with, this result refers
to the simplicity and good characteristics of instructors of the university. Moreover, lots of programs that
help in understanding basics and advanced mathematics.
Conclusion: Successful pedagogies instructors of mathematic used give the best explanation of results we
have got in this study especially in distance learning. Detailed study plan that clarifies the course objectives,
topics, evaluation method, books and resources must be given to students.
