Academic and research interests

Markos specializes in Research in Mathematics Education. He is passionate about what he does. His research interests include the following subjects:

  • Social and cultural dimensions in mathematics education. Gender and mathematics.
  • Theories of learning and teaching in mathematics education.
  • Mathematics in and out of school. Formal and informal mathematics. Mathematics in the workplace.
  • Metacognitive skills during the process of solving math problems.
  • Mathematics classroom interactions: reasoning, argumentation and shared-meaning.

In 2013 he successfully completed an attempt to create a website called "Mathematics Education" aiming to inform on issues related to learning and teaching mathematics, which is developing and is visited by a considerable number of people. 

Given his research interest in issues of mathematics education, he carries on participating in conferences presenting research and also as a reviewer or member of the organizing and scientific committee. Also, he attends online courses and he is actively contributing in scientific communities.
