Student Voices about Senior Secondary Mathematics: An Investigation of Victorian Senior Secondary Students' Decisions about Studying Mathematics.
Toomey, Ron; O'Donovan, Richard
Mathematics Education Research Journal, v9 n2 p191-204 Sep 1997
Presents case studies that indicate that the process of choosing subjects for the final years of schooling is part of the larger psychosociological process of identity formation for young adults. Uses these cases to reexamine the suggestion that high participation rates in senior mathematics are important for social, educational, and economic reasons. Contains 37 references. (Author/ASK)
