Research Areas


Mathematics Education

Italian Mathematics Education is a very active field of research,
always present in the main international conferences, both with
research reports and with participation in scientific committees of
journals, conferences and associations.

Within DIISM, a large group of researchers works in this area.

The activity of the group concerns a wide range of outstanding topics
addressing problems in Mathematics Learning and Teaching.

Specifically:

- Influence of metacognitive and affective factors (emotions,
attitudes, beliefs, ...) on cognitive processes.

- Relations between language and disciplinary learning

- Design of e-learning models

- Use of technology as didactical tool (Technology Enhanced Learning)

- Conjecturing and proving in Mathematics

- Concepts construction in problem-solving activity

The group members have been partners in Italian and European research
projects (PRIN,
PLS, RMT, TELMA, ReMath, LOSSTT-IN-MATH, M3EaL).

Moreover, the group has been constantly engaged in fostering
professional development of pre-service and in service teachers (SSIS,
TFA, PLS, RMT, ...).


The above mentioned research activities are supported by the
Mathematics Education Laboratory (LEM).
This Laboratory is an important local tool joining University researchers and teachers of any School level: most actions involving cooperation of teachers and
students, integrated with current research, go through the LEM,
allowing continuous and effective interaction between practice and
theoretical assessment in mathematical education.
