A study on Primary School Pupils’ Perception on Studying Mathematics was conducted jointly by researchers from the National Institute of Education (NIE) in Singapore and the Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Institute of Education (SHBIE) in Brunei Darussalam. Altogether 543 twelve year olds from Singapore and Brunei participated in the study. As part of the study pupils were asked to respond to the question “Describe the qualities of the best mathematics teacher you have ever had?” Pupils were also asked to “Draw a picture of your best mathematics teacher teaching in class.” This paper reports the perceptions of the pupils and discusses them in relation to the teaching / learning activities in mathematics classrooms in Singapore and Brunei.
This paper was published in the 1999 Proceedings of the MERA-ERA Joint Conference held at Malacca, Malaysia from 1-3 December 1999
