Didactics in Mathematics

Didactics in mathematics is indispensable as a professional science for mathematics educators, particularly when it comes to integrating subject-specific components and educational training components with the required training to become a high-quality mathematics instructor. There are a number of related sciences: mathematics (including its history), pedagogy, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and more and more, the field fo computer science.

  • Our research focuses on the use of technology (i.e. GeoGebra) in the classroom and what education in mathematics is really like.
  • We work closely with educators and didacticians in Austria and abroad at numerous events and as part of various projects.
  • In cooperation with mathematicians, instructors, and educators, we focus on educating future math teachers.
