************************************* Information provided by Barbro Grevholm. ************************************* Nordic Research in Didactics of Mathematics: Past, Present and future
A new book is available about Nordic studies in mathematics education edited by Barbro Grevholm and four of her former doctoral students in Sweden, Norway and Estonia.
The volume contains a number of chapters about original research studies in the Nordic and Baltic countries. It provides many examples, useful for both teacher educators and student teachers, which can be directly connected to work in the classroom. The chapters are written by experienced teacher educators, researchers and doctoral students. Taken together these chapters give an overview of what is going on in mathematics education research in the Nordic and Baltic countries and its roots, and indicate as well some of the possible future actions and activities.
The book was published at the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the doctoral programme in mathematics education at University of Agder in Norway and the 50th anniversary of Barbro Grevholm's work as mathematics teacher, teacher educator and researcher in Sweden and Norway.
