Action research is a methodology that is considered to be a valuable problem-solving tool in most of the literature on action research. For the teacher in the classroom it can provide opportunities for reflection and improvement, a testing ground for improving the teacher’s practice. Implemented in this way, action research is also seen as.
Action Research Proposal: Mathematics Problem-Solving Skill and Reading Comprehension This is an action research proposal which seeks to address the failure of some students to solve and analyze mathematics word problems due to poor reading comprehension.
The study extended previous research that suggested that schematic-based instruction (SBI) and cognitive strategy instruction (CSI) delivered within an explicit instruction framework can be effective in teaching various math skills related to word problem solving. A multiple-baseline design replicated across groups was used to evaluate the effects of the intervention of bar model drawing on.
The purpose of this action research is to improve the basic math skills of algebra I students at North Panola High School. One of the fundamental pieces of algebra is taking a word problem and translating it to an algebraic expression. In order to successfully complete this, students must be able to recognize and use basic mathematical terms (Maccini, 2000). In addition to writing algebraic.
In Teaching Through Problem-solving (TTP), students develop each new mathematical concept by solving a problem that illuminates it. Overview; Journals; Boardwork; Discussion; TTP in Action; Resources; Each TTP lesson is carefully planned as an individual lesson, and also as part of a cohesive unit in which each lesson builds on prior learning. TTP lessons are designed to build students.Learn More
Action research is, fundamentally, a problem-solving technique that may be applied to a wide variety issues and problems across professions. Action research seeks to improve organizational performance through reflective and, often, collaborative analysis of outcomes.Learn More
The basis for most mathematics problem solving research for secondary school students in the past 31 years can be found in the writings of Polya (26,27,28), the field of cognitive psychology, and specifically in cognitive science. Cognitive psychologists and cognitive scientists seek to develop or validate theories of human learning (9) whereas mathematics educators seek to understand how.Learn More

Problem Solving in Action. By Carla Poole,. Five- and 6-year olds' problem-solving skills differ in many ways from younger children's. One of the most important changes is their developing ability to tolerate frustration. Kindergartners are much more likely to be able to withstand a period of frustration as they confront and work though a difficult problem. While younger children may give.Learn More
Action research: Solving real-world problems Received (in revised form): 12th December, 2007 Mohamed Fawzy Afify is an assistant lecturer at Faculty of Tourism and Hotels, Menoufia University, in Egypt, having previously worked in Egyptian hotel resort properties. He is currently studying for his PhD at the University of Surrey. His study into the implementation of continuous improvement in.Learn More
That said, while action research is typically focused on solving a specific problem (high rates of student absenteeism, for example) or answer a specific question (Why are so many of our ninth graders failing math?), action research can also make meaningful contributions to the larger body of knowledge and understanding in the field of education, particularly within a relatively closed system.Learn More
Action research can be defined as “an approach in which the action researcher and a client collaborate in the diagnosis of the problem and in the development of a solution based on the diagnosis”.In other words, one of the main characteristic traits of action research relates to collaboration between researcher and member of organisation in order to solve organizational problems.Learn More
Action research improves math instruction. of solving subtraction mysteries and proposing solutions to fix them. Students worked hard to become one of the top detectives so that they could circulate around the room to double-check the work of others. After a two-week period of sixty-minute daily mathematics instruction, Beckett administered a posttest—the same teacher-made assessment that.Learn More
There is a substantial amount of research literature as well as many practitioner books on problem solving (Polya, 1957); Frensch and Funke, 1995; Moursund, 1996). Problem solving consists of moving from a given initial situation to a desired goal situation. That is, problem solving is the process of designing and carrying out a set of steps to.Learn More
Most problem solving methods follow a common pattern, beginning with a definition of the problem, moving on to the consideration of potential solutions, and culminating with the selection, testing and implementation of a chosen course of action. Divergent thinking techniques can be helpful in generating creative ideas, while convergent thinking can assist in structuring and evaluating.Learn More
Teaching Through Problem-solving flows through four phases as students 1. Grasp the problem, 2. Try to solve the problem independently, 3. Present and discuss their work (selected strategies), and 4. Summarize and reflect. Click on the arrows below to find out what students and teachers do during each phase and to see video examples.Learn More
