Abstract: The role of mathematics is vital for everybody and in many fields. However many students regard it as tough, and they hate it. Therefore this study would like to identify the performance of primary school students in mathematics. It is also to determine the relationship between influence factors (perception, interest, and knowledge) and performance. 110 students from a national school in Shah Alam, Selangor joined this study. The questionnaire used to collect data, and it contains three parts, includes 26 Likert-scale for influence factors questions and 20 multiple choice questions as well 10 essay questions for performance which adapted from the UPSR syllabus. SPSS 20.0 uses to analyze the data. Meanwhile, descriptive statistics, normality, correlation, regression, and ANOVA use to test the data. Findings showed the students had a moderate perception, interest, and knowledge however low in term of performance. The result also shows a significant correlation between influence factors and performance as well as a significant correlation between knowledge and performance. Finally, the regression model proved that the perception, interest, and knowledge could use as an indicator in learning mathematics.
