This paper presents an exploratory social network analysis of the study behaviours of undergraduate mathematics students. Focusing on the second-year students within a large lecture class, it presents data on their self-reported percentage lecture attendance, number of hours spent studying alone and with others outside lecture time, and occasional and frequent conversations about mathematics with other students. It then presents analytical results on relationships between individuals’ centrality within the network and amount of study time.
