About this book


This open access book, inspired by the ICME 13 topic study group “Affect, beliefs and identity in mathematics education”, presents the latest trends in research in the area. Following an introduction and a survey chapter providing a concise overview of the state-of-art in the field of mathematics-related affect, the book is divided into three main sections: motivation and values, engagement, and identity in mathematics education. Each section comprises several independent chapters based on original research, as well as a reflective commentary by an expert in the area. Collectively, the chapters present a rich methodological spectrum, from narrative analysis to structural equation modelling. In the final chapter, the editors look ahead to future directions in the area of mathematics-education-related affect.

It is a timely resource for all those interested in the interaction between affect and mathematics education.

“This monograph is a great resource for those math educators who wish to have a background in the interaction of affect and mathematics education. … We need this research to continue not only for the future of our students but also for us as teachers to pass the affect, emotion, motivation, and love of mathematics to future generations.” (Peter Olszewski, MAA Reviews, November 9, 2019)
