 How can we support students to grasp mathematical structures?
 Insights into design research in mathematics education


Grasping mathematical structures is a key goal of mathematics education, but has often been shown to challenge many students. The talk reports on design research aiming at understanding and overcoming these challenges. It will show that language is a key learning medium for mathematical structures, and provides insights into approaches and backgrounds how students’ language can be supported. The topic serves as exemplary case for explaining how mathematics education research can be conducted as design research.
