The mathematical ability of Indonesian students is still lacking, especially when working on problems that require reasoning. Task value (which consists of intrinsic and attainment/utility values) and growth mindset were considered as factors that can influence student performance in performing complex tasks such as mathematics. A hypothesis formulated based on the purpose of this study as there is an effect of intrinsic value, attainment/utility value, and mindset on elementary student performance in mathematics. The variables in this study were measured by: 1) Subjective Task Value scale (? intrinsic value = 0.87; ? attainment / utility value = 0.79); 2) Implicit Theories of Intelligence scale for mindset (? = 0.84), and 3) mathematical tests (? = 0.84). The subjects of this study were 371 5th grade students in five schools in Jakarta selected by convenience sampling technique. Data processed with Multiple Regression techniques using IBM SPSS 22 for Windows. The analysis showed that the mindset had a greater role than the intrinsic value in predicting mathematical abilities. Also, the attainment/utility value did not significantly predict the performance of 5th-grade students.
