GIPEAM is a group committed to research in the field of Mathematics Education, with its 'headquarters' at the Departament de Didàctica de la Matemàtica i de les Ciències Experimentals of Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
Among the goals of the Group are the following:
- To establish and support critique, discussion and communication of our own studies on mathematics teaching an learning and, more broadly, of the state-of-the-art of the local and the international field.
- To promote and refine the proposal of relevant research problems with a range of challenges regarding what is known and what remains to be known regarding field-based theories and methods.
- To generate and keep regular forms of collaboration for the development of leading research topics that contribute to the scientific community and include the participation of the educational community.
- To produce and disseminate quality specialised research oriented to the understanding of processes involved in the mathematics classroom and in the scenarios of mathematics teacher education.
