Abstract

Drawing on Critical Friendship as a theoretical base, an investigation was carried out to find out what components of teacher-student relationship would make a difference in the performance in mathematics of the eleventh graders in the Cape Coast Metropolis. A sample size of 2,575 students was randomly chosen to fill a questionnaire on teacher-student relationship and write an achievement test in mathematics. Findings revealed that trust, fear and lack of respect negligibly and statistically correlated with achievement scores; unhealthy context and challenge correlated negligibly (but not statistically); while support did not correlate. The sub-constructs jointly shared a variance of approximately 8% with achievement scores. With a focus on developing critical minds and democratic future leaders, there is a need for pre-service and in-service training on the teacher-student relationship. Awareness about the teacher-student relationship in the learning of mathematics may be created through debates among students in schools.

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
