Welcome to the Open University’s hub for Mathematics Education. Mathematics Education is the field of knowledge and research that considers how people think about mathematics, how they learn it and how they teach it. It includes aspects of psychology, sociology, philosophy and history - all studied through the lens of mathematics. Mathematics education concerns the relationship of mathematics and people, including comparisons of mathematics in different cultures, and how mathematics is used to make a difference in the world.
There are a wide variety of mathematics based activities available for schools and families that our Open University academics are involved in.
Develop your knowledge of mathematics and mathematics education through distance learning.
The Mathematics and Statistics department offer undergraduate degrees in mathematics which are accredited by the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications.
We foster a vibrant collaborative research culture encompassing academic staff, postdoctoral researchers and full- and part-time research students.
In addition to teaching on Open University modules our academics are engaged in ground breaking research that benefits individuals and society.
