## Research

In the fall of 2018, programming was included as a new element in several of the mathematics courses in the Swedish high school. This is a change that places new demands on both students and teachers. In my research, I study how programming can be incorporated as a tool in mathematics teaching and how the use of programming as a mathematical tool can promote specific mathematical abilities closely linked to mathematical problem solving.

## Teaching

In addition to my research studies at Karlstad University, I work part time as a teacher in mathematics and physics at the upper secondary school Sundsta-Älvkullegymnasiet, located in Karlstad.
