Conference theme

The conference theme, Relating Practice and Research in Mathematics
Education, is intended to focus on how different practices in
preparation for learning are related to teachers' views on the learning
of mathematics, and how these views are related to basic theoretical
aspects of mathematics education. Research in this tension between
theory and practice will develop more knowledge about practices that can
foster improved learning in mathematics, and therefore enhance knowledge
about favourable approaches to education in school and to pre-service
and in-service education of teachers.


The conference is primarily designed for teachers and teacher educators,
researchers and graduate students in mathematics education, in
particular from the Nordic and Baltic countries, but participants from
other countries are most welcome. 


The programme will include invited plenary talks (60 min), paper
presentations (40 min), workshops (60 min), short communications (20
min), and a scheduled poster session. 

Official language

The official language of the conference is English.
