Background: The study of factors related to spatial visual processing is considered as a suitable framework for examining the relationship and interaction of emotions and cognition, which is a prominent feature of cognitive science research. Aims: The aim of this study was to mediate the role of working memory and mathematical anxiety in predicting spatial visual processing based on mathematical self-efficacy and creativity of female elementary school students. Method: The present study was a correlational analysis of the path. The statistical population of all female students in Tehran in the academic year 1397-98 and the statistical sample consisted of 477 fifth grade students who were selected based on the number of variables by cluster random sampling. Participants were Torrance Form A (1972) Non-Verbal Creativity Questionnaire, Plaque and Placer Mathematical Anxiety Scale (1982), Active Memory Test for Children (2006), Liu, Coeralla, and May Mathematical Self-Efficacy (2009), and Binet Spatial Visual Processing Test (2003). ) Completed. Pearson correlation and path analysis were used to analyze the data. Results: Based on the results obtained in this model, 0.86 variance of visual-spatial processing variable was explained. Mathematical self-efficacy variable only indirectly mediated by working memory variables on spatial visual processing and mediated by mathematical anxiety with spatial visual processing showed a positive relationship. Also, the working memory variable directly showed a positive relationship with creativity. Creativity affects visual processing only through the variable of active memory. Mathematical self-efficacy and creativity have a positive relationship with spatial visual processing mediated by working memory of female students (p <0.154). Mathematical self-efficacy and creativity are not related to spatial visual processing mediated by female students' mathematical anxiety (p< 0/001). Conclusions: Based on mathematical self-efficacy, the spatial visual processing variable can be explained.
