Abstract [en]

The construction of tasks is important to challenge pupils, but the exploration of pupils’ perceptions connected to their work with tasks, is rare. This paper presents the results of a study using a tool aimed at measuring pupils’ perception of joy and interest connected to ‘rich learning tasks’ by comparing the views of mathematically promising pupils and others. Two tasks were pre- and postevaluated, the first by 139 and the second by 106 pupils from grade 4-9. The results indicate that the tool is suited for the exploration of pupils’ views, especially as it can be deduced from the comparison that mathematically promising pupils perceived both tasks more positively than the other pupils, and that the non-identified pupils became more positive after working especially with one of the tasks.
