Low Performing Students Perceptions towards Mathematics: Evidence from Secondary Level Students of Public Schools in Nepal

Rajendra Kunwar

This paper presents the perceptions of low-performing secondary level students towards mathematics. In this study, the participants consisted of 180 students, 30 each from the 6 secondary schools in Nepal. Two schools from each ecological region; Hills, Mountains and Tarai were purposively selected. A Likert type survey questionnaire was developed and administered to the participants. The data thus collected were analysed calculating the mean of the responses. The findings revealed that the low performing students' perceptions towards mathematics were negative in that they thought that mathematics was a difficult subject although they still perceived mathematics as a subject of value and importance.
