Cambridge Mathematics in University of Jyväskylä 27.4.2017 - Mathematics Education Research Kaleidoscope

Cambridge Mathematics is a University of Cambridge project in partnership with Mathematics and Education Faculties, Cambridge University Press and Cambridge Assessment.

Cambridge Mathematics aims to learn about how the Finnish mathematics curriculum was developed and written, whether there is and emphasis in learning through play, exposures or experiences in mathematics, are there any recent innovations in the mathematics curriculum and related research findings, and how IT is embedded into the maths curriculum and its assessment.
