Schüler*innen beim Lernen

Subject didactics focuses on providing basic contributions for the subject specific process of teaching and learning. In our group these contributions are primarily subject specific analyses, development of teaching materials (school text books, materials for in service teacher education) and empirical investigations concerning the practice of teaching, e.g. with regard to following areas of reasearch and development:

  • Applied mathematics in mathematics education
  • Subject-matter didactics
  • Elementary mathematics
  • Mathematics as a process
  • Basic ideas ("Grundvorstellungen"), fundamental ideas
  • Competence orientation
  • Individual concepts of mathematics (beliefs)
  • Problem solving in mathematics education
  • Using technology in mathematics education
  • University didactics
