Not Your Usual Maths Course: Critical Mathematics Education for Adults.
Patrick, Rachel
Higher Education Research & Development, v18 n1 p85-98 Apr 1999
An action research project investigated the features of critical theory that were useful for teaching everyday mathematics in an evening course for five Australian adults. The development of a positive, cooperative learning environment, as discussed by M. Frankenstein (1989) and O. Skovsmose (1994) proved to be key in increasing mathematical confidence and ungrading skills. (SLD)
