InnoMathEd aims at substantial innovations in mathematics education on European level. Pupils should be given the chance to develop deep mathematical understanding, to acquire key competences that are essential for lifelong learning and to use ICT, especially dynamic mathematics, for individual and cooperative learning processes. For that purpose didactic concepts, pedagogical methodologies and innovative learning environments for pupils are developed, tested, evaluated, disseminated and exploited on European level. They focus on pupils’ active, self-responsible and exploratory learning.

To implement these innovative concepts and tools in the educational practice in Europe the project includes the development of strategies and courses for effective initial and in-service teacher education as well as various concrete educational activities for students of mathematics education and teachers in practice. Educational staff in the European area of learning is made acquainted with didactic concepts for teaching and learning with dynamic mathematics fostering pupils’ key competences. This process and the products are regularly evaluated with the aid of a specific online evaluation tool to ensure high quality outcome.

The long term impact of the project on the European educational system will be ensured by a wide variety of valorisation strategies: Innovative didactic concepts will be spread out in initial and in-service teacher education, best practice learning environments will be disseminated and exploited via web-based offers and print media, the public as well as decision-makers in policy and education administration will be included in dissemination processes and scientific results will be made public in the scientific community so that further research in the fields of didactics and pedagogy can build on the outcome of InnoMathEd.
