Abstract: 

This paper will focus on another aspect of the teaching experiment that has heretofore been alluded to in the literature, but never fully addressed; namely, the epistemological considerations one must make when contemplating the teaching experiment as a research methodology. While the following remarks may well apply to any subject matter area, they will be couched in terms of mathematics education, since this is the area of our own interest and specialty.
