Research at the department of science and mathematics education

Research at the department is mainly conducted at pre-, primary-, and secondary school levels. The main research fields are science education and mathematics education.

Two interdepartment and interfaculty networks are located at the department; Umeå Mathematics Education Research Centre (UMERC) and Umeå Science Education Research (UMSER). These interdepartmental research environments has been successful both in terms of generating new perspectives on educational research, and in being rewarded several large research grants.
