About

For some years, I have been teaching a course in methods and theories of science for our master students. In addition, I have been teaching in master programmes in mathematics education and in early years teaching. In addition, I have been supervising master students.
Within research and development, I have worked a lot on history of mathematics and the inclusion of this in teaching mathematics. From 2016-19, I have also been evaluating the mathematics exam in Norwegian compulsory school together with FAFO and Aina Fossum. From 2019-2022, I take part in a Research Council-supported project on teachers’ transdisciplinary competence, led by Monica Johannesen. Other interests are the history of mathematics teaching (at the moment, in particular New Math and exams through the ages). I am co-author of the book Tall og tanke 2 and a related activity book.
I am part of the editorial board of Tangenten and have a position as Professor II at Volda University College.
