Hello, and welcome to another episode of the Mr Barton Maths Podcast, with me Craig Barton.

This is an episode from the Research in Action mini series, where I interview a researcher from the Mathematics Education Centre at Loughborough University about their chosen area of interest, and the implications for maths teaching and learning.

On today’s episode I was lucky enough to speak to Julia Bahnmuller

Julia studied psychology in Germany, where she received her PhD in 2018. Julia is a trained dyscalculia therapist allowing her to both put her theoretical knowledge into practice and to feed research and teaching with questions and input resulting from the work with children, learning therapists, instructors and parents.

Amongst other things we spoke about:

  • Number-words in different languages and the impact it can have on students’ early grasp of number and place value – wait until you hear about German!
  • What are the implications for teachers who teach students for whom English is not their first language?
  • And an area I know very little about… Dyscalculia
