Title The teacher as researcher - teaching and learning algebra
Author(s) Persson, Per-Eskil
Date 2007
English abstract
Together with a colleague I performed a study of which factors that facilitate or obstruct students’ learning of algebra. This research is the context for my reflections in the paper. Thus I will briefly present the aims of the study. Starting with three examples from my research I describe and discuss how this, together with the theories connected with it, helped me to interpret and understand better what happened in the classroom and how theories and research could be used to improve my own teaching practice. I also try to show the relationship between the challenges of having the double role as a teacher and also an observer and the benefits of doing action research, both for the students and for the teacher/researcher. Finally, I discuss how the process of going through a research education has affected me as a person and a newcomer in the didactical field.
