Summary As part of a broader study of characteristics of situations that promote or inhibit spontaneous student exploration of novel mathematical ideas, student inclination to display these spontaneous behaviours was studied in conjunction with resilience. Resilience was operationalised using the dimensions of optimism (Seligman, 1995). Indicators of optimism were identified in post-lesson video-stimulated reconstructive interviews with year eight students. Students who demonstrated the pursuit of novel mathematical ideas were found to also display indicators of resilience.
