The Centre for Research in Mathematics Education (CeRME) is fully committed to improving the quality of mathematics education through student research.
Our programmes of study and research are designed to deepen understanding of developments in policy, curriculum and pedagogies from the perspectives of theory and practice. Study will support educators and researchers, across all education sectors, who are committed to improving learners’ and educators’ mathematical learning experiences.
Opportunities for undergraduate study in mathematics education are available at bachelor’s level.
We offer these specialist undergraduate mathematics education papers:
160320 Mathematics in Education (S2 2017)
Opportunities for postgraduate study in mathematics education are available at certificate, diploma, master’s or doctoral levels.
Current Postgraduate Research Students
CeRME aims to support and encourage a strong and collaborative community amongst our postgraduate students. Part of this involves bringing our postgraduate students together for shared learning experiences, via web-based communities and through research symposiums. Symposiums in particular, provide opportunities to interact with leading national and international researchers and share your own research in a supportive learning environment.
Postgraduate students can be involved in personal or collaborate research projects through the Professional Inquiry paper (267.860 & 276.870), or master or doctoral thesis work. Below is a list of current postgraduate research projects:
The following programmes of study are available:
Within the master’s programme, students select one of two research pathways: professional inquiry or thesis.
We offer these specialist postgraduate mathematics education papers:

Students are encouraged to select research projects that align with the centre’s research agenda. Current postgraduate projects include:
Fear of mathematics
Developing algebraic reasoning
Authentic problem solving in the classroom
In addition to alignment with funded projects, we welcome inquiries into joint staff/postgraduate student research projects.
