The First Sourcebook on Nordic Research in Mathematics Education!
The First Sourcebook on Nordic Research in Mathematics Education Martin Carlsen, Anne Berit Fuglestad, Simon Goodchild (pictured above) and other members of the mathematics education research group at UiA have made a significant contribution to this recently published volume, which ’provides the first comprehensive and unified treatment of historical and contemporary research trends in mathematics education in the Nordic world’. Also in the picture is Professor Bharath Sriraman (University of Montana) who is general editor of the Sourcebook.
Members of the mathematics education research group at UiA have made a significant contribution to this recently published volume, which ’provides the first comprehensive and unified treatment of historical and contemporary research trends in mathematics education in the Nordic world’.
Researchers at the University of Agder have contributed about half of the Norwegian section. We are proud that the Norwegian section comprises one third of the 740 page book. The book, thus, reflects the growth of research in mathematics education throughout Norway and here at the University of Agder.
The General Editor and inspiration behind the Sourcebook is Professor Bharath Sriraman (picture, back left) from the University of Montana. Editor of the Norwegian section is Simon Goodchild (front right). Other UiA contributors to the Sourcebook include Anne Berit Fuglestad and Martin Carlsen (both in the picture), other UiA contributors (not in picture) are Hans Erik Borgersen, Trygve Breiteig, Maria Luiza Cestari, and Barbro Grevholm. In addition, Raymond Bjuland (now working at the University of Stavanger) and Barbara Jaworski (now working at the University of Loughborough, UK).
Also chapters were written by researchers whose PhD’s were supervised by UiA researchers: Bodil Kleve (Oslo University College) and Reidar Mosvold (University of Stavanger).
Other ’Norwegian’ contributions come from Anne Birgitte Fyhn (University of Tromsø), Liv Sissel Grønmo (ILS, University of Oslo), Marit Johnsen-Høines (Bergen University College), Christoph Kirfel (University of Bergen), Nora Linden (Bergen University College), Åse Streitlien (Telemark University College), Ole Einar Torkildsen (Volda University College), and Kjersti Wæge (NTNU).
Note: Professor Bharath Sriraman’s visit, October 7-13, 2011, was supported by a UiA ‘Guest Stipend’. This was his third visit to the mathematics education group. We are grateful for his collaboration and encouragement in our work. We are also grateful for the Guest Stipend scheme that make such visits possible.
