# Mathematics Education Laboratory

# Supporting students opting to become middle or high school math teachers and researching on mathematics pedagogy.

Our laboratory is supporting students who wish to become middle or high school mathematics teachers and researching into mathematics pedagogy. Our attempt is, in particular, to encourage the students to proactively acquire mathematical skills. In researching on mathematics pedagogy, we are practically studying (a) super science high schools that collaborate with middle schools and universities, (b) the use of the history of mathematics in math education, (c) utilization of technologies in math education and (d) ways to enhancing the ability to give math lectures during teaching practices at school.

## This lab is for this SDG activity:

## STUDY FIELDS

- Mathematics pedagogy
- Information science

## FOR SOCIETY

In modern-day math education, teachers are required to constantly seek effective instruction methods so that children understand mathematics. Against this backdrop, our laboratory strives to train mathematics teachers to be able to perform well from the moment they are employed.

## RESEARCH THEMES

- Development of teaching materials to stir interests in mathematics among middle and high school students and its empirical research by examining classes
- Research on the use of information and communication technologies in mathematics education
- Development of teaching materials that incorporate the history of mathematics, in particular the math culture in the Edo period, for teaching mathematics of today.
