New work by Professor Christian Bokhove and colleagues has been published. In the article “Using Social Network Analysis to gain insight into social creativity while designing digital mathematics books” they explain how Social Network Analysis can provide insight into the social creativity process of designers working together on digital mathematics books. Analysing the processes and […]
NARST is a global organization for improving science teaching and learning through research. In this symposium titled: “Once upon a time… The use of narratives in informal learning environments”, colleagues presented five studies examining narratives in the context of STEM learning in informal settings: science museum, zoo, virtual exhibition, escape room, and home-based engineering activities. […]
Over February, our Growing Wild Citizens @ school project has been working with Year 5 and Year 3 children on preparing to grown food outdoors within their school grounds. Activities started with the children planting many indoor winter vegetables in both schools in 8 mini greenhouses, such as: Beetroot Radish Coriander lemon Sugar snap peas […]

In April Professor Christian Bokhove is presenting two new papers at the annual meeting of the AERA. One paper is about the relationship between non-cognitive outcomes and science, mathematics and reading achievement, based on PISA data, and a collaboration with Dr Jenny Byrne and Dr Andri Christodoulou. The second paper looks at the predictive value […]
Last week, we had a Mathematics, Science and health Education Research Centre (MSHE) event for MSc students. During this event students were given the opportunity to engage in activities, discuss mathematics and science education research; and meet members of the Mathematics Science and Health Education (MSHE) Centre at Southampton Education School. The talks and activities included: […]
Southampton Education School alumnus Dr Zhenzhen Miao, Professor Christian Bokhove, Professor David Reynolds, and Professor Charalambos Y. Charalambous, have published “Rational numbers and proportional reasoning in Chinese primary schools: Patterns, latent classes, and reasoning processes” in the Asian Journal for Mathematics Education. https://doi.org/10.1177/27527263221143802 Abstract: Rational numbers and proportional reasoning are challenging topics in school mathematics. […]
Dr Ben Davies has secured funding for developing an interactive version of the School Mathematics Textbook materials. Interactive SMP focuses on developing online interactive workbooks for secondary school mathematics. These workbooks will be adaptations of the existing SMP archive and are a collaboration between the Southampton Education School, Department of Mathematics, and 10+ secondary school […]
An article “Distinguishing Nature of Science Beliefs, Knowledge and Understandings” authored by Richard Brock and MSHE colleague Wonyong Park has been published in the journal Science & Ecuation. Whilst teaching about the nature of science (NOS) is a significant goal of science education, there remains debate about specifying the NOS and appropriate pedagogies and approaches […]
In Spring 2022 we conducted the ‘Mathematics in Transit’ project. In this project a team of teachers and researchers from post-16 schools, the Southampton Education School and the School of Mathematics, explored curriculum materials to find the topic that would be most helped with a supporting booklet. The most useful topic was ‘proof’. This booklet […]
