Recycling, an Alternative Source for Mathematics Resources: Action Research Experiences of a Teacher-Trainer

Publication Date: 
June 2009

The article uses action research techniques to explore a recycling initiative to assist teachers to acquire and use instructional materials to improve practice in the mathematics classroom. It shares aspects of my researchjourney into the 'World of Waste' accompanied by my team of pre-service and in-service teacher-participants, in search of mathematics resources. It brings into focus the physical and human resource treasures we unearthed amidst challenges and triumphs, with the Recycling and Resource Centre for Mathematics emerging as a significant find near the end of the journey. The EnviroMath concept created during this inquiry highlights a meaningful connection between mathematics and the environment.
