Garnering different kinds of data from students about their perceptions of mathematics helps teachers, teacher leaders, districts and researchers better understand students' perceptions. In this study, we investigate and compare students' perceptions of doing mathematics from samples of students from the United States, China, and Fiji. We administered the Draw Yourself Doing Mathematics instrument developed by Bachman, Berezay, & Tripp (2016) to students at three grade levels in China, Fiji, and the United States of America. Statistically significant differences among perceptions in the three countries and the three grade levels were observed.
