Abstract

This paper reports on a mathematics intervention initiative, Prepare 2 Learn, designed taking into account research literature and elements of other successful programs. The program was intended to prepare students for their upcoming mainstream mathematics lessons as well as make them aware of the impact they can have on their own learning through their actions and attitudes. The intervention resulted in the students reaching the expected standard or beyond for their year level as well as positively changing the way they saw themselves as mathematics learners. The following paper focuses on sustainable changes to one students’ mathematics learning and disposition.
