Johanna Pejlare

Lecturer, Mathematical Sciences

My research is dedicated to the history of mathematics and mathematics education. In particular, I am interested in the early Swedish history of mathematics education. I am currently involved in the project "Towards research-based teaching of algebra". Within this project, I study the implementation of algebra in school mathematics during the last 50 years. I am also involved in a comparative study focusing on students' flexibility in mathematics.
​I teach mathematics and mathematics education at the teacher program at the University of Gothenburg.
I have a broad research interest in the epistemology of mathematics.
