The group conducts research in different aspects of mathematics education. Some of the areas of interest are teacher education, history of mathematics and mathematical reasoning, teaching competencies, algebraic concepts, problems solving strategies, assessment, and gifted education. The main focus is on the university and upper secondary level, and the transition between the two.
The PhD-students are part of the research theme Matematik och naturvetenskap
, which involves several departments and organizations engaged in mathematics- and natural science education research at the University of Gothenburg.

Historical note: Already in the nineties, before the
Teaching and Learning of Mathematics Research Group was formed, the
department had staff involved in mathematical education research,
especially Mats Martinsson and Christina Nystedt.
