Collaborative Action Research in Mathematics Education: A Tale of Two Teacher-Researchers.
Raymond, Anne M.
First steps toward engaging in collaborative action research in the mathematics classroom are vital in establishing quality research projects designed and implemented jointly by classroom teachers and university faculty. This brief paper describes the initial phases of a collaborative research project centered around the incorporation of problem solving into a middle school mathematics curriculum. The researcher and a seventh-grade mathematics teacher established a collaborative relationship and subsequently developed, implemented, and documented their efforts regarding mathematics classroom reform. Discussion includes the teacher's initial reflections on problem solving, planning for implementation, time, evaluation, instructional material and training, problem-solving strategies, use of manipulatives, and documenting classroom reform.
