This study investigated the connection between students’ performance and activity
for an introductory mathematics course organised using a student-centred teaching
method. A relationship between performance and activity was found: the highest
performing students reported that they attended drop-in sessions, worked with their
peers, discussed with instructors, and attended lectures more than the weakest
performing students. Moreover, students’ motivations and learning strategies were
related to their behaviour. The results suggest that it is important to provide the
students with an accessible learning environment without time constraints, and offer
them opportunities to collaborate with peers.
