Jeremy Hodgen

Professor Jeremy Hodgen has been appointed Chair of Mathematics Education, based in the department of Curriculum Pedagogy and Assessment.

Currently Professor of Mathematics Education at the University of Nottingham, Professor Hodgen's primary research interests relate to understanding how to improve participation and attainment in school mathematics. He has published widely on mathematics education, teacher education, assessment, international comparisons and standards over time.

Professor Hodgen has an outstanding record of securing research funding from a variety of funders. Currently, he is Principal Investigator of a study examining low attainment in mathematics at Year 9, founded by the Nuffield Foundation, is Director of Improving Competence and Confidence in Algebra and Multiplicative Structures (ICCAMS), a large-scale trial funded by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and is leading several EEF evaluations.

His work has had a very strong record impact on policy and practice in schools, particular his studies of post-16 mathematics which have framed the current debate around mathematics in post-compulsory education in England. He was an editor of the journal, Research in Mathematics Education, from 2011 until 2016. He is currently a member of the Royal Society's Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education.
