About me

I am 40 yrs old, working within teacher education in Norway. My workplace is the university college in Sør-Trøndelag. I live in Trondheim, the 3rd biggest town in Norway.

A serious pose for serious times

I am educated teacher with “hovedfag” (This has now been replaced by master’s degree, an equivalent degree of one half year less study length) in mathematics from NTNU as well as a few Ph.D.courses in mathematics education. I also have taught information science, natural science and physics.

My interests within mathematics have always been the teaching and learning of mathematics, perhaps even more interesting to me than the mathematics content in itself has been. I have also taken a special interest in teaching mathematics with ICT, and in particular I have grown very fond of using GeoGebra in teaching. More about that in my blog posts. In addition, I love the topic of mathematical history and find it interesting to see how the subject has evolved up through the ages.

    I know a trick: I was born in 1952, but never know, or have to know, what age I am. Constants – Variables: 1-0.
