Established in 2003, the RME Group is a growing and vibrant community of researchers in mathematics education with a range of research interests across educational levels (primary, secondary and tertiary), and expertise in a variety of research approaches.
The Group was established following the successful hosting of PME26, the 26th Annual Conference of the International Group for Psychology in Mathematics Education in 2002.
RME Group research has been supported by the ESRC, the Nuffield Foundation, the British Academy, the Higher Education Academy, the Learning and Teaching Support Network, RCUK and several research councils from outside the UK (e.g. Canada and New Zealand). Collaborations, in research and teaching exchanges, with several EU countries have been supported by the Erasmus, Socrates and Comenius programmes.
Much of our research is conducted in close collaboration with UEA's School of Mathematics and group members currently hold collaborations with mathematics education researchers from across the UK and Europe as well as abroad (such as Brazil, Canada, New Zealand, China and Greece).
