Collaborative Action Research In a Seventh-Grade Mathematics Classroom.
Raymond, Anne M.; Hamersley, Brad
This paper describes a study in which both collaborative action research and collaborative mathematics classroom instruction took place. The mathematics instruction consisted of the implementation of a problem-solving curriculum into seventh-grade mathematics classrooms. One problem-solving strategy per week for 10 weeks was introduced to the 4 classes which comprised a total of 125 students. Changes in students' attitudes, beliefs, and knowledge about problem solving were examined using pre- and post-problem solving surveys. Significant changes were found in all areas. A discussion of the teacher-researcher collaboration is included. Appendices contain surveys of students' beliefs about problem solving and examples of problems solved by students. (MKR)
