Mathematics education

The Melbourne Graduate School of Education's Mathematics Education Group advances knowledge of the teaching and learning of mathematics.

We do this through:

  • providing high quality research-based education for all of those involved in the teaching of early childhood, primary and secondary school mathematics, through pre-service graduate courses and in-service professional learning programs
  • supervising research higher degree candidates undertaking Master of Education, Doctor of Education and Doctor of Philosophy degrees
  • conducting and publishing research locally and internationally
  • contributing to the improvement of mathematics education by working with local schools, state and national education authorities, international bodies, professional associations and other national and international colleagues/researchers
  • engaging with the wider society to promote the learning of mathematics and numeracy.
