ab: An action research project investigated the features of critical theory
that were useful for teaching everyday mathematics in an evening course
for five Australian adults. The development of a positive, cooperative
learning environment, as discussed by M. Frankenstein (1989) and O.
Skovsmose (1994) proved to be key in increasing mathematical confidence
and ungrading skills. (ERIC)
