Abstract

David Chinofunga investigated student participation in calculus-based senior secondary mathematics in Queensland and pedagogical resources that enhance teaching of mathematics. Trend analysis reveal a high dropout rate. David also found that pedagogical resources that comprise procedural flowcharts and concept maps can enrich mathematics teaching and promote student participation and engagement.
