The results showed that mathematics humanists with metaphorical thinking (MT) is superior to conventional learning in enhancing the confidence of students, viewed as a whole and based on the level of the school and the beginning of students' mathematical abilities. There is a high association between KAM and confidence in the classroom with learning metaphorical thinking, and the conventional class association between KAM and confidence quite enough.
