Qualitative and quantitative data was collected and analyzed during this action research project. This is an action research with the problem: the Difficulty of the 2nd year ASU-LHS Stucents in Solving Operations Involving Fractions. Problem solving in mathematics and reading comprehension go hand in hand. The Effect of the Scaffolding Strategy on the Performance of Grade 9 Students in Solving Word Problems in Math: Solving Math problems entails the students to apply two skills at the same time: reading and computing.

JOURNAL OF TEACHER ACTION RESEARCH 34 Mathematics Word Problem Solving Through Collaborative Action Research Eda Vula, Rajmonda Kurshumlia Abstract: In this study, two researchers, a third-grade teacher and a professor of mathematics education, investigated the A convenience sample was used to determine the participants in this study. It is a double-edged sword. Specifically in my 2010-2011 class, only 11 out of 60 pupils could successfully solve word problems with or without help from t… By: Debra Laxton Spring 2016 Dr. Sheila Martin Abstract: This action research project was to determine how I impact student learning with learning how to add and subtract fractions. RESEARCH ON THE FOUNDATIONS OF FRACTIONS Section 1. Adding and Subtracting Fractions: Action Research Project. I. This action research study was conducted in a fourth grade classroom in a rural central Illinois elementary school for five weeks from the beginning of February to March 2013. Action research is a methodology that is considered to be a valuable problem-solving tool in most of the literature on action research. The action research aims to enhance the performance of Grade VI-C Pupils in Mathematics in Buyagan Elementary School through the use of Arts In Math (AIM). Adding and Subtracting Fractions: Action Research Project. As a public school teacher of sixth grade mathematics for five years, I have encountered many pupils who are poor in both comprehending and analyzing math word problems. This is an action research with the problem: the Difficulty of the 2nd year ASU-LHS Stucents in Solving Operations Involving Fractions. This study was done on a fourth grade math class containing fifteen students, with two weeks of learning. The Importance of Fractions The mathematics education literature is resounding in its findings that understanding fractions is a challenging area of mathematics for North American students to grasp (National Assessment of Educational Progress, 2005). Specifically, the action research sought to: 1) use Arts in Math (AIM) to enhance the mastery level of Grade VI-C in Mathematics, 2) improve comprehension skills of Grade 6 For the teacher in the classroom it can provide opportunities for reflection and improvement, a testing ground for improving the teacher’s practice. This study was done on a fourth grade math class containing fifteen students, with two weeks of learning.

Implemented in this way, action research is also seen as
