Abstract:
This action research project focussed on the key components of the construct mathematical resilience and how mathematical resilience can be developed in learners who are working towards their GCSE in mathematics. Split-screen lesson objectives, one related to a mathematical skill and the other related to a learning skill, were used to focus the learner’s attention onto each skill. These learning skills were chosen to encourage a particular group of learners to gain the confidence, persistence and perseverance to allow them to work inside the Growth Zone. The overall aim of this action research project was to improve the attainment of learners in their GCSE mathematics examination.
