Research group

The group of mathematics education focuses on mathematical problem solving, covering both school mathematics and university mathematics. We are especially interested in flexibility and sociomathematical norms.

Of current interest is the project "Flexible equation solving" which is part of the LUMA FINLAND program, aimed at students in grades K-9. As of March 2015, pilot studies on new material were conducted in three schools in the Oulu region. During school year 2015-2016 several schools have applied and tested the material.
