Science and Mathematics Education

The R&D Community on Science and Mathematics Education aims to generate fruitful discussion between teacher educators and researchers interested in science and mathematics education. We learn from each other’s experience, become part of a network of colleagues extending throughout Europe and beyond, and we carry out research either individually, in small groups, or as a team. 

Members have also participated or are participating in several projects.

Main themes

  • Developing constructivist approaches to teaching and learning science and mathematics.

  • Teachers’ and student-teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge.

  • Concept development and problem solving for teachers and student-teachers.

  • The use of IT in the education of science and mathematics teachers.

  • Preparing to be a science or mathematics teacher: a comparative study.

  • Mathematics teachers’ and student-teachers’ mathematical identities.

  • Prospective teachers’ meanings for and representations of the ratio concept.
