This chapter backgrounds and critically reviews Australasian research in the affective domain in mathematics education from 2016–2019. It first locates the body of research within broader considerations of an affective domain and then explores the individual affective aspects of beliefs, self-efficacy, identity, attitudes, motivation and interest, feelings, anxiety and emotions, and engagement. Consideration is given to the methodologies used in research in the affective domain during this time period.
