© the Authors, 2016. This is an authors' final draft version of an article whose final and definitive form has been published in IETC, ITEC, IDEC, ITICAM 2016 Proceedings Book.
The article shows the mathematical self-concept of the sixth grade pupils (n=57) in relation to their mathematical skills in school. Mathematical skills were measured with the help of a survey of the command of the decimal system and on the basis of the report grades in mathematics. The pupils’ mathematical self-concept was surveyed in the beginning of the sixth grade with the interviews and a questionnaire using the Likert-scale. The mathematical self-concept seemed to be more positive the better the mathematics skills pupils had.
