ab: Summary: What pupils think about mathematics often features in discussion
between mathematics educators. But, how often is “what learners think
about their mathematics lessons" a feature of enquiry? It could be a
“high risk" strategy to garner honest comment that relates to the
“classroom experience". Notions of “risk" apart, the process of
collecting data that is consistent learner to learner has a complexity
that might be daunting to a potential researcher. This piece describes
one attempt to “consult" pupils on their mathematics lessons. What
features might figure large in the responses? Maybe comments relating
to disaffection with the subject, boredom, excitement, what might be on
your list? The results delve into emotions, perceptions, and much more
that suggests this approach is essential to develop classroom practice.
