Grootenboer, Peter
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Paper presented at the 27th International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education Conference Held Jointly with the 25th PME-NA Conference (Honolulu, HI, Jul 13-18, 2003), v3 p1-8
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.
