ab: Summary: This paper discusses the progress to date of an NCETM/ESRC case
studentship project which focuses on the partnership between teachers
and teaching assistants in secondary mathematics classrooms. The
research background and rationale for the study are explained and the
development of an innovative system of classroom observation to track
the movement of the teacher and teaching assistant during mathematics
lessons is discussed. Examples from the pilot study are employed to
illustrate how this data tracking system is being used to triangulate
the teachersâ€™ and teaching assistantsâ€™ interview responses and
identify how the teacher and teaching assistant work collaboratively in
the classroom environment.
