Our research spans across a variety of areas of mathematical cognition and mathematics education. We have a dynamic community of academic researchers whose work delves deeper into the early learning of mathematics and acts as a key aid for teachers and practitioners.
Here at the Centre for Mathematical Cognition, we conduct research to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics. Our researchers are involved in the creation of exciting and novel materials for the classroom and work closely with teachers and practitioners to evaluate the effectiveness.

Uninformative trials and their causes
Hugo Lortie-Forgues and Matthew Inglis recently conducted a review of all randomised controlled trials (RCTs) commissioned by the EEF and the NCEE, a US-based funder that also commissions educational RCTs, with an aim to find out what's going wrong with large-scale educational RCTs.
