Mathematics is a fundamental core subject of STEM education as mastering it may enable students to understand the concepts of other disciplines better [1]. However, mathematics concepts are abstract and students having difficulties to understand mathematical ideas [2]. Moreover, some students are lack of confident, having negative feelings towards mathematics, feel not relax and cannot focus in mathematics class. Furthermore, university classes usually are large scale that make individualized assistance difficult to achieve. Many studies shown that there is a significant relationship between students’ attitude towards mathematics learning and their mathematics’ academic achievement [3] – [8]. Additionally, the lack of personalized assistance may decrease the undergraduate’s satisfaction, weaken the learning outcomes and increase the dropout rate [9], [10], [11]. Conversational-based agents (CA), an automated computer software, allow users to interact with it through human language dialogues may implement into education to support the teaching and learning process. Nonetheless, CA still in the beginning stage[12] to implement in education domain where the CA research in this domain [13],[14], especially mathematics subject, is found scarce [15],[16]. This study is to incorporate CA into undergraduate mathematics learning based on Vygotsky’s ideas and investigate the effectiveness of this incorporation in terms of students’ achievement and attitude towards mathematics, and their perception towards the use of CA in their mathematics learning.
