This project aims to:
- Propose an efficient and effective protocol for third level mathematics educators to explore the Mathematical Identities of their students with a view to improving the teaching and learning of mathematics.
- Collaborate with researchers in institutions, other than SPD and SUC, in exploring students’ Mathematical Identity.
- Extend the work on Mathematical Identity undertaken in MIST, thus giving insight into how the Mathematical Identities of different cohorts of student teachers compare with one another and with those of students in other disciplines.
