Research in the MEC explores the fundamental processes involved in learning mathematics, and analyses, develops and evaluates pedagogical practice designed to enhance mathematical learning. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, our research activity was judged to be of an exceptionally high quality: 85% was deemed to be “world leading” or “internationally excellent”, the fifth highest of any UK education department.
The Centre has two interest groups which form the focus of our research activity.
Designing, analysing and evaluating pedagogical practice.
Discovering how students understand mathematics.
