Sample Action Research Paper In Mathematics

Partial fulfillment of TEAC 888, Teacher as Scholarly Practitioner from the Department of Teaching, Learning, and Teacher Education University of Nebraska-Lincoln
The requirements for the written product of teachers' action research projects differ for participants seeking MA and MAT degrees.
For those seeking MAT degrees, the Action Research Report is only one component of the MAT master's degree exam, the rest of which is comprised of mathematics questions, including an expository paper.

A SAMPLE ACTION RESEARCH IN MATH 6

I. SITUATION/PROBLEM

Low performance in Mathematics of Grade Six Pupils during the 1

st

 periodical exam in S.Y. 2002-2003. Class average Grade was 76.8%

Poor classroom participation of pupils in Math 6. Only 5 out of 40 participated meaningfully. II. OBJECTIVE

How to increase the performance of the pupils in Math 6. III. POSSIBLE CAUSES (Identified through questionnaires, PRIORITY interviews, brainstorming, (Rank based on or observations) discussion) 1.

Poor study habits. 4 2.

Poor pupil ability in four basic mathematical operations. 1 3.

Boring, dull, dry class. 6 4.

Unapproachable teacher. 7 5.

Low mental ability of students. 9 6.

Absenteeism/tardiness of pupils. 2 7.

Infrequent remedial class held for math 6. 3 8.

Poor nutrition. 8 9.

Poor family support. 5 IV PLAN OF ACTION (Possible solutions) Strategy Time Frame Answers Item(s) in III 1. Strengthening of remedial classes and focusing on four fundamental operations. 2. Counselling / coaching / monitoring of the teachers by Math Coordinator as to how to: a. concretize abstract concepts b. make subject more interesting. 3. Principal counsels then monitors teacher-pupil relations. 4. Principal/teachers to call PTCA to a meeting and talk about impact of proper nutrition on students, absenteeism/tardiness of their children, poor family support on their children. 5. Counsel students on absenteeism 6. Teaching the proper way of studying. Sept-Oct Sept-Oct Sept-Oct Sept-Oct Sept-Oct Sept-Oct 2, 7 3 4 6,8,9 6 1
