Additional Information: This paper examines teaching contexts related to an ongoing national policy intitiative, the Further Mathematics Support Programme - and addresses the issues of choice and participation in post-compulsory mathematics. I take a poststructural approach to the subjectivities consructed in further mathematics, and trace how clasroom imperatives of work and happiness set in place ways for students to exclude themselves from participation. The paper won the Janet Duffin award 2010 awarded by the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics.
