The Department of mathematics and mathematics education offers teacher training preparing teachers of mathematics for the primary and secondary schools and participates in the training of future teachers of mathematicsin grammar schools and special education.
The members of the Department participate in the work on several important research projects and cooperate with many foreign institutions. Most significantly with the University of Bordeaux, University of Derby, University in Kassel, and Durham University.
The members of the Department participate in
- program committees of international conferences (SEMT, PME, CERME, CERME, Creativity in Mathematics Education, ESU5, EMF, CME)
- committees of international organizations (IG PME, CERM)
- international professional organizations (Steering Committee of The Philosophy of Science in a European Perspective, organized by the European Science Foundation; the Université Victor Segalen Bordeaux 2, EuropeanResearch in Mathematics Education, etc.)
- editorial boards of international journals (Educational Studies in Mathematics, Dydaktyka Matematyki, The Mediterranean Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, Journal for Research in Mathematics Education,Hellenic Mathematical Society's Journal for Mathematics in Education, Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, Kluwer publishing house Series for Mathematics Teacher Education).
The Department organises SEMT (International Symposium Elementary Mathematics Teaching) each two years. The next one will be held August 16-21, 2015. See the website www.semt.cz.
The Department have the honour to organise 9th Congress of European Research in Mathematics Education. It will be held February 4-8, 2015. It will be preceded by the YERME day aimed for young researchers (February 3-4, 2015). See the website www.cerme9.org.
