In this study, a total of 153 diploma and bachelor students were involved on semester one students. A survey study comprises of one set of questionnaire were used to collect data The questionnaire was divided into three dimensions, confidence, patience and willingness. The data is then analyzed using The Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS). The descriptive and inferential statistics analyses were used to analyze all the research questions. The research findings reveal that the level of patience, confidence and willingness towards problem solving are medium. The findings also shows that there is significant contribution between overall attitude in problem solving and mathematics achievement. On the other hand, the finding shows that there is no significant relationship between gender towards problem solving and mathematics achievements. Finally, the research draws conclusions and recommendations based on students’ attitude towards problem solving and finally to develop simulation model to predict students performance in mathematics. It is hoped that the results of this study could serve as a resourceful guideline for future preparation and the ways to improve students’ achievement in mathematics.
