Abstract

This action research project examined the benefits of Project-based learning (PBL) and how PBL can be implemented into a middle school math classroom in order to increase student engagement and achievement. Establishing math as a PBL class at the middle school can help students to understand the content better, create meaningful projects that have real world applications, be assessed in multiple different ways, have autonomy in their learning, perform better on summative or state assessments, and to shift their mindset about mathematics. Implications of the findings will be discussed and recommendations for future classroom practice will be made.
