Project description
Changes in the nature of work and societal practices in the post-industrial economy are transforming the kinds of knowledge and skills needed for future employment and participation in everyday life. People should develop capabilities to use their mathematical skills in a highly adaptive and flexible way in novel situations. Building on the accumulated scientific knowledge and findings of our own previous research, the aim of the ENADA research project is to (1) develop a better articulated theoretical understanding of the flexible and adaptive use of rational number knowledge, (2) study how this adaptive rational number knowledge develops in conventional mathematics education, and (3) examine how best to develop students adaptive rational number knowledge in rich, game-based learning environments.
