A Cross-border comparison of Student Teachers’ Identities relating to Mathematics

The Project Aim is to ascertain and compare the mathematical identities of primary school student teachers.

Project Objectives:

  • 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.
