Interest is the best teacher for everyone. Learning interest will directly affect students’ attitude towards learning, which is an important factor to promote students to think actively and improve their learning efficiency. Junior high school mathematics as a strong logical subject, its complexity and abstractness, is easy to make students feel bored, so the teaching should cultivate students’ interest in learning. The paper determined the interaction and influence between interest and attitude and analyzed the important role of cultivating students’ interest in mathematics in junior high school. The influence of students’ interest in and attitude towards mathematics learning has always been a common problem. Hence, this study assessed, through a survey questionnaire, the interests and attitudes of Chinese students to help them learn mathematics better. Overall, the findings suggest that students’ attitudes towards math interests and mathematics were generally positive.
