Starting from CERME12 in 2022, two awards – the Paper Award, and the Poster Award – have been designated by committees of experts for outstanding contributions to the ERME conferences. The winners and their works are displayed on this page (click on the links to see the relevant paper or poster).

Paper Awards 2022

Robyn Gandell (University of Auckland, New Zealand): Moving mathematically. TWG 14: University Mathematics Education
“The committee valued particularly how this original, small-scale study of students’ engagement with solving modular arithmetic tasks imports embodied theories in mathematics education research with data analyses that steer away from the body/mind binary and pinpoint what we may miss when we treat body movement as a mere adjunct to thinking”

Andrea Tiedke (University of Wuppertal): The construction of low attainment in mathematics – why are primary school children selected for intervention programs? Results from a meta-analysis of case studies. TWG 10: Diversity and Mathematics Education: Social, Cultural and Political Challenge
“This paper offers an original and timely perspective on the notion of low attainment identities through the complex interplay between individual, sociocultural and school-based factors.”

Mei Yang (University of Cambridge): Chinese teachers’ professional noticing of students’ reasoning in the context of Lakatos-style proving activity. TWG 1: Argumentation and Proof
“The committee particularly valued the original combination of theoretical constructs from mathematics education research on proof and mathematics teacher noticing which, associated with a methodology based on semi-structured, vignette-based interviews, has led to interesting results.”

Poster Awards 2022

ID389 ‒ Comparing the implementation of programming and computational thinking in Denmark, Sweden and England  (TWG23)

Morten Misfeldt ; Uffe Thomas Jankvist; Raimundo Elicer; Eirini Geraniou; Kajsa Bråting; Andreas Lindenskov Tamborg

“This poster succeeds in capturing everyone’s attention due to its minimalist, appealing and thought-provoking design. It synthesizes a large research project and encourages you to make connections between images, representations and different disciplines.”

ID560 – Community detection for undergraduate mathematical views (TWG8)

Domenico Brunetto, Michela Tassone, Ester Cravero

“This poster successfully emphasizes the different elements of the research work presented and the originality of the methods used. While it includes a lot of information, it remains coherent, accessible and readable.”

ID714 – MathMemeThon: how mathematical memes bring teachers and students together during Italy’s pandemic lockdown (TWG15)

Giulia Giovanna Bini

“This poster presents an innovative research project of high scientific quality and encourages ‘new’ research venues. Its graphical design is creative, engaging and capturing.”
