The Project Aim is to ascertain and compare the mathematical identities of primary school student teachers.
- To briefly compare the mathematics curricula (4-17) north and south and provide a comparison of mathematics in initial teacher education
- To determine the mathematical identity of selected student teachers using a range of tools including the use of narrative.
- To explore how narrative might inform good practice in mathematics education.
