The purpose of this study was to examine preservice teachers’ math teaching anxiety, to explore the relationships between math teaching anxiety and several variables, and to understand how preservice teachers’ math teaching anxiety changed during eight-weeks of the Online Laboratory School (OLS) within a university. We administered the Math Teaching Anxiety scale with 14 items to 43 preservice teachers by adapting Hadley and Dorward’s (2011) scale. The results revealed that on average, preservice teachers had math teaching anxiety from “a little” to “a moderate amount” degree before the OLS and their math teaching anxiety did not significantly change during the OLS. Moreover, math teaching anxiety was only significantly correlated with the number of methods courses completed so far.
