Research Abstract 
This study analyzed the depths of a needs tendency of children for learning of arithmetic / mathematics. I grasped the tendency, and it was carried out for the purpose of contributing to improvement of future arithmetic / mathematics education At first I analyzed an internal and external precedent study and constituted a question paper item in an enthusiast /phobia and the reason, study of arithmetic / mathematics, reasons to learn arithmetic / mathematics and viewpoints of problem solving of arithmetic 1 mathematics. Subsequently I carried out question paper investigation for two grades of the sixth Bade elementary school and the third grade junior high school in Japan, China and Korea and gathered up the result The thing that became clear is as follows. A reason which children pick up for is good, and a factor of phobia is "interest of arithmetic / mathematics". The reason which a child put up as the reason that arithmetic / mathematics likes is "interest of arithmetic / mathematics". Subsequently, about study of arithmetic / mathematics, there are more a large chop and child doing it than a child assuming that I like it. Affirmative reaction compares it with Japan and Korea and, about a reason to learn arithmetic / mathematics from, is high about Chinese children. Reaction that I can "think logically" is particularly high among other things in China. About problem solving in arithmetic / mathematics, the reaction that is affirmative tends to be high. About Japanese children, affirmative reaction to being going to "flunk about another method" is high in an elementary school. Affirmative reaction to I do not "give it up and be, and being going to think" is high in a junior high school
