Integrating Educational and Cognitive Perspectives on Mathematics

Tuebingen, Germany
26-28 September 2018

Mathematical competencies play an important role in our everyday life. Factors interacting with successful mathematical knowledge acquisition not only include interindividual differences in learners and educators but also cover specificities of the learning environment and context. Research approaches in the domain of mathematical education and learning operate on different granularity levels: (a) underlying processes required to solve one specific type of mathematical task, (b) efficiency of a specific instructional practice in a classroom setting to (c) consequences of (insufficient) mathematical knowledge on a socio-economic (society) level. Therefore, the aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers focusing on different aspects of mathematical education and learning (e.g., individual variables and skills of both learners and teachers as well as varying context variables of the educational setting such as classroom environment, the inclusion of technological innovations, and curricula) and to integrate research findings obtained on different granularity levels.
