About me
I am interested in research which concerns all students’ opportunities to be invited into the world of mathematics through mathematics teaching and learning in school. I am involved in various research projects that all have connections with each other. One project focus on what we can learn from adults' mathematics in professional life and what we can learn concerning school mathematics. Another research interest is about how feedbacks and assessments that take place on a daily basis in the mathematics classroom offers students affordances to get involved and to learn mathematics. I am interestied in invetigating assessment in mathematics in a broad sense with a focus on in/exclusion of students as well as how teachers are positioned. Regularly, I perform research together with mathematics teachers in action research projects. I am also interested in general aspects for communication between teachers and students in the mathematics classroom and how this is affected by the decisions and structures at different levels in the school as an institution.

Action research in mathematics education
One of my fields of research is to perform participatory action research together with teachers. In the uploaded reports you can read about projects on feedback and communication in mathematics classrooms (in Swedish).
Below are links to other texts deriving from action resarch projects (in Swedish):
