Abstract

Using the PPELEM (Pupil Perceptions of Effective Environments in Mathematics) drawing and description tool, 208 children in their first two years of school portrayed themselves learning mathematics well. The responses provided insights for teachers and researchers into children’s perceptions of mathematics learning and often revealed a detailed and accurate recall of mathematical events, the locations in which they occurred, the people who were involved, and the mathematics learned.
