Differentiated Success: Combining Theories to Explain Learning
MetadataShow full item record
This paper explores the value of different paradigms to explain dispositions towards mathematics among primary school students from different social backgrounds. As part of a larger project designed to elicit students’ thinking and attitudes towards mathematics, we seek to develop an explanatory model for the socially-differentiated outcomes in students’ responses. The three paradigms – psychology, sociology and post-modernism – form the basis of the paper where the data we collected from three geographically close but socially different schools were analysed.
