On Tuesday, November 17, the faculty of education at UNB Fredericton is proud to present Dr. Annica Andersson as part of our Colloquium Series.

Mathematics is considered to be one of the most important school subjects for students to pass worldwide. On the other hand, we have all heard comments like “why do I have to do this?” or “only geniuses can do math.” It is not uncommon for students to have excluding experiences of mathematics education.

In this talk, Dr. Andersson explores different discourses about mathematics and mathematics education, delving deeper into the discussion about experiences of excluding identities and possible reasons for this.

Dr. Andersson is a senior lecturer at Stockholm University with the department of mathematics and science education. She is a visiting scholar this semester at UNB’s faculty of education.

This is a free public lecture. The public is invited to attend on Tuesday, November 17 at 7pm. The event takes place in Marshall d’Avray Hall, 10 MacKay Dr., UNB, in room 356. A reception will follow the presentation.
