Action Research

Action Research is aimed at actively investigating barriers and opportunities to increase mathematical understanding of achievement within the post-16 sector with a key focus on GCSE maths. This is undertaken by practitioners who explore alternative and systematic approaches within all aspects of delivering a maths curriculum using established academic principles and research as a foundation for this exploration.
