About me
I am interested in research which concerns all students’ opportunities to experience mathematics through mathematics education in school and other contexts. I am involved in various research projects that all have connections with each other. One project focus is 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 feedback and assessment that take place on a daily basis in the mathematics classroom offer students affordances to get involved in and to learn mathematics. I am interested in investigating 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.

Research
Mathematics in vocation and school contexs
In collaboration between vocational teachers, mathematics teachers and myself, we investigate relations between the teaching contents of different vocations and of mathematics. When doing this we, we strive towards taking both contents seriosly, and we view both contents as consisting of both theoretical and practical dimensions. Participants:

Action research in mathematics education
One of my fields of research is to perform participatory action research together with teachers. In the reports found on this link, you can read about projects on feedback and communication in mathematics classrooms (in Swedish):
