The focus of the Mathematics Education course is bringing participants up to date in curriculum development and research in the field of mathematics education, and refreshing and deepening the knowledge of meaningful and relevant mathematics education. Topics will include curriculum development, revealing and building on talents of students, task design, classroom experiments and lesson study, contexts and tools for modelling and inquiry-based learning, assessment, and the use of technology for teaching and learning mathematics.

The Summer School on Mathematics Education offers a blend of lectures, seminars and workshops on educational research and development in the fields of primary, secondary and higher mathematics education. The program will be tailored towards the diverse interests of master’s students, PhD students, teachers, teacher educators, curriculum and assessment developers and researchers. 

The Summer School is organised by the Freudenthal Institute of the Faculty of Science of Utrecht University in collaboration with ICSE (International Centre for STEM Education) .  

The presenters are experts in the area of teaching and learning mathematics and in the domain-specific theory of Realistic Mathematics Education (RME).

This course brings participants up-to-date in design and research in the field of meaningful and relevant mathematics education. Topics will include curriculum development, revealing and building on talents of students, classroom experiments and lesson study, contexts and tools for modelling and inquiry-based learning (IBL), assessment, and the use of technology for teaching and learning mathematics. The collaboration with ICSE addresses in particular the potential of IBL for taking opportunities offered by diverse and multi-cultural mathematics classrooms.
