About the Department

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics Education website. Established in 2002, the Department (formerly known as the Mathematics Education Centre) brings together a diverse community of around 20 staff, comprising academic staff, project staff, and visiting fellows. It also has a vibrant group of postgraduate research students.

What we do

Our research explores the fundamental processes involved in learning mathematics, and analyses pedagogical practice designed to enhance mathematical learning.

We are also involved in teaching (through the delivery of Loughborough's highly-regarded PGCE in Secondary Mathematics, as well as modules in mathematics education, much mathematics and statistics teaching within engineering, and as part of the University's foundation programme), outreach work and providing high-quality student support.
