You will prepare and submit a term paper on Planning for Action Research. Your paper should be a minimum of 1250 words in length. Having to focus on a couple of issues at the same time proves to be difficult as the action research process appears to be chaotic and disorganized (Mertler, 2013). This may lead to a mix-up of the data collected a possibility of drawing wrong conclusions about the topic at hand hence. This calls for a keener teacher-researcher who would have to engage in collaborative research with effective results. This further demands financial commitment amid scarce resources thus possible hitches along the course of the research. The researcher has to engage in self-reflection, description, and explanation while trying to get an insight into educational theories, values and historical contexts of the school.
Every research study happens to be different based on dates conducted and the focus spared on the topic at hand (Mertler, 2013). This creates a literature body that is different relative to all other available research results on the same area of study. As such, it is difficult to have a prescriptive step by step process for writing such a review. Additionally, some topics may experience a lack of attention over a given period. It would be difficult to gather information pertaining to them. It is pretty difficult to consider the number of references that would be regarded as enough during a review. There is no parameter for that amount of related literature that one would term as enough.
Searching online for the above-stated literature presents web sites, journal articles and conference papers with content established by individuals who shared interest in the topic. Markku S. Hannula shares some findings at link.springer.com about the attitude towards mathematics (Hannula, 2002). .
Pietro Di Martino presents a conference paper on attitude towards mathematics on theoretical issues during the 25th Conference of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education held At Utrecht Netherlands .(Martino, 2014). The Pakistan Economic and Social Review-Journal shed some light on the attitude towards mathematics by learners .(Shah, 2008).
