2008). This ‘clever core’, who simply ‘know lots of maths’ (Lucy, Year 4, Middle-Set, Riverside), often without reason, appear at times to be viewed with a sense of awe: ‘You know Mr Sherman’s [top] set? I heard they’re 4A’ (George, Year 4, Middle-Set, Riverside). Thus, the mathematical identities available to the ‘normal’ student are thus constructed as lacking ability in comparison to the imagined ‘other’ of the clever core. Mathematics, like the pupils themselves, is divided into two groups: hard and easy work.

And I really do think that a lot of my understanding is somewhat ritualistic in that I don’t know how to apply it to new situations, so to me that means that I’m not really very good at maths. Well, I am good at it, but I don’t have the depth of understanding that I would like to have. This discursive contradiction (‘I’m not actually good [. ] well I am good [. ]’) indicates a splitting of the notion of what understanding might be (mirrored in longstanding debates on the nature of mathematical understanding).

I really want to get a first for this degree and I spend quite a lot of time working out how possible that is.
