Mathematics is a compulsory subject that students must learn since on elementary school, because of its usefulness on daily lives. But many obstacles experienced by students in learning mathematics, one of which is mathematical anxiety. This study aims- to explain how students mathematical anxiety is seen from gender factors and their implications. The subjects of this study were 10 grade V students of an elementary school in Sumedang. Case study methods are used to understand and analyze students mathematical anxiety. The results of the study were obtained from data collected through questionnaires, mathematics test, interviews and the field notes of mathematics learning process which was then analyzed descriptively. The research results show that mathematical anxiety of female students tended to be higher when compared to male. This mathematical anxiety will increase when students face exams. The implication is that the concentration of students with a high level of math anxiety tends to be disturbed when learning mathematical material. Although this doesn-t always have an impact on the results of student learning tests, but the conditions of learning must be arranged in such a way that students are more comfortable and mathematics anxiety can be reduced while students studying.
