This study aimed to explore the teachers’ and students’ perspectives of problems and needs in Experiential Learning (EL) in Mathematics at secondary education. 31 teachers and 35 grade 11 students from Narathiwat province, Thailand, responded to the questionnaire, which was analyzed for mean and standard deviation (SD). Overall, mathematics teachers had moderate level of problems in EL (mean = 3.21, SD = 0.49). The three major EL problems were: students have not yet developed satisfied metacognitive thinking (mean = 3.65, SD = 0.61), academic achievement (mean = 3.48, SD = 0.77) and mathematical process skills (mean = 3.42, SD = 0.72). Overall, teachers had a high level of needs in EL (mean = 3.98, SD = 0.69). Three major needs were: developing technology skills in EL (mean = 4.16, SD = 0.638), awareness of EL (mean = 4.13, SD = 0.89), and readiness for implementing EL (mean = 4.10, SD = 0.79). The students, overall, had moderate problems of EL (mean = 3.33, SD = 0.58). Three major problems were: 1) students have not yet developed satisfied metacognition (mean = 3.80, SD = 0.83), mathematical process skills (mean = 3.80, SD = 0.99), and academic achievement (mean = 3.77, SD = 1.03). Students had the highest level of needs in EL (mean = 4.24, SD = 0.68). Three major needs were: developing mathematical process skills (mean = 4.49, SD = 0.74), academic achievement (mean = 4.43, SD = 0.70), and readiness for EL (mean = 4.29, SD = 0.67).
