Student re-engagement and valuing of mathematics learning through an intervention program

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This paper reports results from an investigation of the impact of an intervention program which was designed to help underperforming students reengage in mathematics learning. The paper outlines teacher and tutor perceptions of the program’s impact on students who participated in the intervention which intends to “get students ready” for their subsequent mathematics lesson. Over the course of the iteration, the students’ cognitive and behavioural engagement improved. Perhaps even more encouraging was the improvement in the students’ dispositions, leading towards greater valuing of mathematics learning.
