Interests: ordinary differential equations; difference equations and dynamical systems; mathematics education; science education
Mathematics is a core element within most educational programs in science, technology, and engineering around the world. This includes what is termed as “service teaching” within secondary and tertiary education sectors.
The learning and teaching of mathematics has suffered from an image problem with students and some staff. Many students exhibit low levels of engagement and interest towards learning mathematics. Some staff fail to see the value in fully committing to service teaching as an activity. The focus of this Special Issue is on exploring and illuminating the student and staff experience of the learning and teaching mathematics within STEM. This includes the learning and teaching of mathematics as a service subject for other disciplines, such as physics, engineering, biological sciences, and so on.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Mathematical curricula in science, technology and engineering programs;
- New or alternative perspectives and techniques of teaching mathematics;
- Authentic assessment and activities;
- Collaborative problem-based teaching and learning;
- Equitable teaching for students in diverse learning environments;
- Engagement among secondary schools, universities, and local communities to increase STEM participation.
