Our profile

The FB3 mathematics education working group brings together a wide range of experience in mathematics and mathematics education research. Collectively we have years of experience in schools, supporting learners and working with teachers. We apply our diverse skills in the contexts of mathematics teacher training and research, learning from and with each other. Our common research interest is gaining theoretical and practical insight into mathematical knowledge and its construction and better understanding the conditions that support learning. 

Our guiding principle in teacher training is a very tight integration of theory and practice. This means:

  • the earliest possible involvement of students in mathematics education research,
  • the application of research findings to practice,
  • gathering practical experience in elementary mathematics and mathematics teacher education, and
  • a didactically enriched elementary mathematics teacher education program.

As a part of the university, we work with other working groups by participating in a variety of university committees and other activities.
