The main focus of the project is on encouraging links in children's minds between the mathematics that they are doing inside and outside of the classroom.
The findings of the study will be brought to bear on contemporary debate on multidisciplinary theory of learning and are expected to have a strong impact on educational research and policy. The project will take a collaborative approach, integrated with, and building on, research networks within and outside the Graduate School of Education.
