Working through the Practice Architectures of First Year University Mathematics Teaching
Balatti, Jo; Belward, Shaun
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) (35th, Singapore, Jul 2-6, 2012)
This paper describes how a group of university lecturers are adopting an action research approach to improve the learning experience of students in first year mathematics. Using the three categories of saying/thinking, doing, and relating (Kemmis, 2009) to explore practice, it describes the new practices of the action research team, the established practices of mathematics teaching at university, and the team's trials at changing elements of that teaching practice.
