Nordic Research in Didactics of Mathematics: Past, Present and future

A new book is available about Nordic studies in

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

The book was published at the occasion of the
10th anniversary of the doctoral programme in
mathematics education at University of Agder in
