This study investigates the effect which students’ misbehaviours have on senior secondary schools mathematical argumentation. Ninety mathematics teachers were used as subjects of the study. Behavioural Mathematical Argumentation Questionnaire (BMAQ) was used to get information on the type of mathematics argumentation logics and methods that the respondents were using and the challenges they were facing. Data obtained were analyzed with Chi-square and Pearson product moment correlation statistics. The result shows that students’ misbehaviours have effect on the quality of mathematical argumentation and teaching duration.
