# Mathematics Education Research Kaleidoscope in Finland with Cambridge Mathematics

# 27.4.2017

Mathematics Education Research Kaleidoscope – Cambridge Mathematics in University of Jyväskylä

**Cambridge Mathematics** is a **University of Cambridge** project in partnership with **Mathematics and Education Faculties, Cambridge University Press** and **Cambridge Assessment.**

**Cambridge Mathematics** aims to learn about how the Finnish mathematics curriculum was developed and written, whether there is and emphasis in learning through play, exposures or experiences in mathematics, are there any recent innovations in the mathematics curriculum and related research findings, and how IT is embedded into the maths curriculum and its assessment.
