2007 (English)In: Relating practice and research in mathematics education: proceedings of NORMA 05, Fourth Nordic Conference on Mathematics Education, Trondheim, 2nd-6th September 2005 / [ed] Christer Bergsten, Trondheim: Tapir Academic Press , 2007, 349-360 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Students' beliefs and attitudes towards mathematics teaching and learning is the focus of the study described in this paper. Some preliminary results from research carried out in Norway in 2005 are given, which focus on first year students in upper secondary school. The answers from the ninth grade students in 2005 are briefly compared with students' responses from 1995 when corresponding data was collected within the KIM project in Norway. Both of these studies use a questionnaire elaborated in 1995. Some of the aspects related to a similar study amongst Estonian students, that will take place in spring 2006, are also discussed.
