Students’ perceptions of factors contributing to successful participation in mathematics. (English)
Johnsen Høines, Marit (ed.) et al., Proceedings of the 28th international conference of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, PME 28, Bergen, Norway, July 14‒18, 2004. Bergen: Bergen University College. Part III, 289-296 (2004).
Summary: This is a report of a project investigating students’ perceptions of the extent to which their own efforts influence their achievement at mathematics and their life opportunities. We conducted two hour interviews with over 50 students, as well as collecting other data. Even students who were confident, successful and persistent exhibited short term goals. It also seems that classroom culture may be an important determinant of under participation in schooling.
