My research, design, and implementation activities are aimed at reaching a better understanding of learning and teaching processes that enable students to realize their mathematical potential. All these activities embrace three interrelated areas:
  • Mathematical ability and development
  • Mathematical creativity and giftedness
  • Mathematics teacher knowledge and professional development
  • Mathematical challenges in education

Multiple Solution Tasks in mathematics are the main research and didactical tool in my studies and instructional design.

I consider Brain Research as a challenge for Mathematics Education Research and am interested in advancing contribution of neuro-cognitive research methodologies to the field of mathematics education.
