M-TERM - Mälardalen University Team of Educational Researchers in Mathematics
The M-TERM research group conducts research in Mathematics Didactics. This group studies and develops, together with teachers and principals, mathematics education in compulsory school and upper secondary school. The purpose of this research is to develop classroom teaching and to contribute understanding of what steers and supports the work of the mathematics teacher.
The researchers focus on two major research programmes:
- Good mathematics teaching in Sweden, Finland, Flanders and the USA.
- To develop mathematics teaching on a large scale.
These projects deal for example with how the researchers, together with municipalities, can develop mathematics teaching on a large scale and on a long-term basis, develop research-based teaching material in mathematics, find out what opportunities for learning are created within the Mathematics Didactics project, and how digital technology can develop mathematics teaching.
The group cooperates with researchers nationally (for example Umeå University and Örebro University) and internationally (for example the University of Helsinki and the University of Pennsylvania).
Ongoing research projects
In this project seven I Ur och Skur preschools [Outdoor preschool -come rain or shine] works with the The OMEP ESD rating scale to develop their work with education for sustainability in Swedish Early Childhood settings.
