# Mathematics and Mathematics Teaching V

22.5 ECTS credits

Module 1, Mathematics teaching specialisation, 7.5 ECTS cr

This module offers specialisation in learning and teaching mathematics. Mathematics education theories are studied, compared, and used as tools to analyse teaching situations. Students should find, read, examine, and discuss research articles on mathematics education. A series of mathematics lessons is planned, discussed, and analysed on the basis of knowledge gained from previous courses on subject theory and subject-specific teaching. Aspects covered include connections to the curriculum concerning core content and various skills to develop, individualisation, different approaches, assessment, and the use of digital tools.

Module 2, Independent project, 15 ECTS cr

The module consists of an independent project. The mathematical problem examined by the student is decided in consultation with the supervisor. The project includes both advanced study of subject theory related to an area of mathematics and an examination of the chosen area from a school perspective.

The chosen area must be advanced in relation to previous mathematics courses in the programme. The following are examples of suitable areas for investigation: Mathematical modelling, non-Euclidean geometry, numerical calculation methods, linear optimisation, coding theory, classical mathematical problems, algorithms and data structures.
