The teaching of the subject Mathematics in the Modern World is one of the new course in the first year college requires teachers to be a high tech teacher-leader or teacher-manager in their respective classrooms. This study surveyed freshmen college students in Math 11(Mathematics in the Modern) on their level of interest, attitudes, and academic performance and did a correlational approach to the gathered data. It also adopted the Performance Analysis Quadrant (PAQ) for employees by Jones (1993 to analyze the relationship of the factors like attitudes towards Mathematics and the level of performance indicated by the freshmen students in the areas of Mathematics. The results showed that:That most of the students have low interest and unfavorable attitude in Math 11(Mathematics in the Modern World) in which most of them have grades of 80 to 84%. The correlation of the level of interest in Math and academic performance is “positive moderate correlation”, while the attitude and level of interest in Math is” positive low or weak correlation”, and the attitude and academic performance is also “positive low correlation.” This implies that as attitude change, the academic performance also changes moderately. “The performance analysis quadrant revealed that most of the students have satisfactory performance but with unfavorable attitudes towards Math 11(Mathematics in the Modern World). Thus, the level of interest can contribute to the attitudes and the academic performance of the students in Math 11.
