The affective views of primary school children
This paper documents a study concerned with examining the affective response to mathematics among 45 primary school students. The study sought to examine how the children's emerging beliefs, attitudes and feelings about mathematics impacted on their learning of the subject. A particular finding was that these beliefs, attitudes and feelings were shaped around a narrow conception of mathematics primarily restricted to number concepts and arithmetic.
