This Qualitative Education Research in Math Anxiety Creative Inquiry course is a one-credit class in which students work together on a project investigating the relationships between math anxiety, working memory, and experiences. Students in the course will learn how to perform qualitative research and gain insight into the nature of math anxiety and what teachers can do about it. Qualitative research is used to gain insight into human behavior and social interactions through qualitative data such as interviews and observations. The CI will involve reading and discussing journal articles relating to the various frameworks surrounding Math Anxiety which will help us to better understand the many ways math anxiety is produced. Students will then work together to analyze interview data following a qualitative research process. Students from all majors are invited to participate in this course. The focus of the project is on math anxiety and qualitative research methods which may be of particular interest to secondary mathematics education, STEM, and social science majors.
What students will get out of the course:
Anyone interested in joining the CI should contact Luke Duncan and provide a resume. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
