Abstract

Affect, or the emotions and feelings that people experience, is a real and significant issue when people are learning mathematics. When people feel included and supported in a positive environment they think more, work harder and enjoy being there. Taking the time and trouble to empathise with your pupils and to establish a positive learning environment will mean that they are more willing to engage, and will lend more attention to learning mathematics, which will lead both to better results for your pupils and to more enjoyment for you in your job.
