As part of a larger project1, students’ views on their preferences for particular types of mathematical tasks were sought, as well as how they describe their ideal mathematics lesson, and their responses to specifically prepared tasks from sequences of lessons. The students had particular views about both tasks and lessons and were able to articulate their views. Teachers would do well to seek to find out the types of tasks and lessons that particular students prefer, and to be more explicit about what they are intending to do in every one of their lessons.
