Abstract

This UK classroom based doctoral research employed a pedagogical focus on mathematical awareness. Three primary class teachers worked alongside the researcher to design lessons which aimed to provoke pupil awareness of the mathematical properties and structures embedded in their mathematical activities. Through this focus we sought to enable lower attaining primary school pupils to make meaningful mathematical contributions to the progress of tasks in the context of mixed attainment pair working. Video recording captured the activity and interaction of lower attaining pupils and their partners. Analysis focused on the nature of the mathematical awarenesses demonstrated by the lower attaining pupil and the impact of these on mathematical progress for the pupil pair. Each of the lower attaining pupils developed and demonstrated important mathematical awarenesses demonstrating the potential of lower attainers to make valid contributions to mixed pair working.
