About Thomas Lingefjärd

Research interests Research field 1: Mathematical modelling—how do students actually understand mathematical modelling when they use technological aids in the modelling process and how do future teachers interpret geometric constructions via computer support, so-called dynamic geometry? Research field 2: Advanced mathematical thinking—when does it occur? How is it defined? Is it possible to note a transition from arithmetic thinking to mathematical thinking among university students? How can such a process be initiated?

Teaching interests I prefer teach and supervise about different variants tied to my research interests as described above. Keywords advanced mathematical thinking in a sociocultural perspective, heuristic perspectives on problem-solving, cognitive processes related to generalization, authority, and didactic contracts, various conceptual models
