Research in the MEC focuses on two interest groups which form the focus of our research activity: the Culture, Pedagogy and Identity Interest Group; and Mathematical Cognition Interest Group.
The Mathematics Education Centre (MEC) consists of one of the largest groups of mathematics education researchers in the UK. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework 85% of the Centre’s research activity was judged to be “world-leading” or “internationally excellent”, the fifth highest proportion of any UK education department.
Staff in the MEC have won national and international awards for their excellent research and research informed teaching practices.
Our research explores the fundamental processes involved in learning mathematics, as well as the design and evaluation of innovative pedagogy. We have a vibrant research culture: our monthly research workshops attract colleagues from across the region, and we have a lively group of research students who are supervised by award-winning academic staff.
Culture, Pedagogy and Identity, Mathematical Cognition.
