A round-up of some of the most interesting and recent research in mathematics education and implications for the classroom.
CM:We are a collaborative enterprise comprising of four education and mathematics partner organisations, all of which are departments of the University of Cambridge. We are committed to championing and securing a world class mathematics education for all students from 5 – 19 years old, applicable to both national and international contexts and based on evidence from research and practice. The project is being headed on behalf of the partners by a team of maths educations specialists. Lucy: I have worked in mathematics education for over 10 years across primary, secondary and the Further Education sector.
The landscape of school mathematics has not fundamentally changed in decades. Drawing on international expertise and grounding our work in evidence, we at Cambridge Mathematics explore why we are creating a tool to reimagine curriculum design and how it might be used in the future to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics around the world.
