CEML’s work is framed around five Challenges. Addressing these challenges will improve our understanding of children’s early mathematical learning and produce research-informed learning resources and professional development.

How do the foundations of mathematics learning emerge in the preschool years?

Challenge 3

What are the causal mechanisms that drive mathematics learning during primary school?  

Challenge 4

How do children’s experiences in early educational settings and at home influence their mathematical development?   

Challenge 2

How do we design effective educational resources based on an understanding of mathematical learning processes?   

Challenge 1

What are the most effective ways to impact educational practice?
