Year 11 Advanced Mathematics: Hearing from Students Who Buck the Trend
Ho, Kai Fai
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
There are concerns about the trends and patterns in enrolments in senior school mathematics. Shortages of suitably qualified teachers and dwindling students' demand for Advanced Mathematics have led some Western Australian schools to collaborate to provide an otherwise unavailable opportunity for their students to study Advanced Mathematics. It is of research interest amidst the downward trends in enrolment to learn about such students, to hear about their experiences and perspectives. This paper reports parts of the initial findings. (Contains 3 footnotes.) [For the complete proceedings, "Shaping the Future of Mathematics Education.
