Samuel Bengmark

Professor, Mathematical Sciences

I have a background in Algebraic Geometry. Nowadays I am mostly engaged in questions regarding mathematics education, both in research and teaching.

The academic year 2015/2016 I was a visiting scholar at the University of California Berkeley
At the Department of Mathematical Sciences, I have the privilege to teach students at both Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg. Lately, I have taught courses at Chalmers masters program Learning and leadership, at the teacher education program at the University of Gothenburg, and at engineering programs at Chalmers.

To see more specifically which courses I teach, please go to the Swedish version of this page.
During the academic year 2015/2016 I taught in four different courses at the University of California Berkeley:

Mathematics 1B, fall 2015, Lecture notes, Worksheets

Mathematics 152, fall 2015, Lecture notes

Mathematics 153, spring 2016, Lecture notes

Mathematics 160, spring 2016, Lecture note


I am ...
  • member of the board at the University of Gävle, since 2020
  • chair of the National Committee for Mathematics at the Royal Academy of Sweden, since 2020
  • member of the Committee for Education at the Royal Academy of Sweden, since 2017
  • member of the Scientific Committee for the International Science Festival Gothenburg
  • part of a working group with six universities within a national project to develop and test sustainable collaboration models between academia and the school system regarding research, school activities, and teacher education. 
Before that, between 2011 and 2016, I was Chairman of ICME-Sweden, which is a sub-organization within the Swedish National Committee for Mathematics where I also was a member. ICMI- Sweden is also the national sub-commission for ICMI, the International Commission for Mathematical Instruction. Through ICME-Sweden I was responsible for the Klein Conference which is organized together with Institut Mittag-Leffler och the Swedish National Committee for Mathematics and which is financed by Brummer & Partners.
 
Within the area of Mathematics Education, I also collaborate with persons from Mathematics at The Royal Institute of Technology and MND at the University of Umeå. I also co-supervise a PhD-students together with faculty from the University of Gothenburg.

Since 2008 I am involved a collaborative project, CESA, with Star for Life and students at the Software Engineering program at Chalmers. The purpose is the supply rural schools in South Africa with computers and basic education on how they can be used.
