"Mathematics--That's What I Can't Do": People's Affective and Social Relationship with Mathematics.
Wedege, Tine
Literacy & Numeracy Studies, v11 n2 p63-78 2002
Argues that adults' relationship with mathematics has three components: cognitive, affective, and social. Focuses on the affective and social components and suggests that the differences between informal mathematics and formal school mathematics lead to the former not being recognized as mathematics. Believes this situation should be analyzed from three interrelated perspectives: the adult's mathematical skills; the adult's conception of mathematics; and the adults' self-perception in relation to mathematics.
