ab: Summary: The purpose of this research was to determine if Irish and U.K.
mathematics teachers would support or deny what Indiana mathematics
teachers would say are the most important skills necessary to
successfully engage second-level students in maths. These European
teachers would assess effective teaching strategies initially
identified by some of Indiana’s most effective maths teachers,
providing a multi-national perspective on effective teaching practices.
It is hoped that this research would allow Irish, U.K. and U.S. maths
teachers to learn from each other. Principals in these countries could
then use the results to help all mathematics teachers improve and
excel.
