Abstract [en]

This paper portrays voices of students pursuing mathematics at their gymnasium. Obtained through narrative interviews, the students voiced were observed and interacted with through their academic year. The opting out by one of the students from the standard level course for another course less demanding, forms backdrop to voices reported. An attempt is made to look beyond the label of modernity and seek to understand how the learning of mathematics by students is intimately connected to their experience of schooling. An example of close-to-practice research, highlighting tensions and contradictions of classroom practice, is presented.
