Kids talking about their learning in mathematics
MetadataShow full item record
In APMC 7 (3) Andrea McDonough (2002) outlined a strategy called PPELEM (Pupil Perceptions of Effective Learning Environments in Mathematics), which was designed to help teachers and researchers understand more fully children's beliefs about effective learning in mathematics, thus focusing on the affective dimension of their education. This study also focussed on the affective side of some children's learning in mathematics as they were asked to comment on their beliefs and feelings about mathematics and their learning of mathematics. In short, it was an attempt to ask some kids what they thought about mathematics and themselves as mathematical learners. The study was undertaken in three Year 5 and 6 classrooms in a suburban New Zealand primary school.
