Steen Groðe

 

Hi! My name is Steen Groðe. The ð you get by holding Alt+208. If you can't spell it like that then it's Steen Grode.


My two main interests have been on mathematics and music. I have always been a non smoker, but a drinker of tea and red wine.

I live in a small blue city house from 1884 in Roskilde.

I am Senior Lecturer in Mathematics teaching.
I hold a Masters in Communication and Mathematics, from Roskilde University Center. 
Presently I am an employe at Metropolitan University College in Copenhagen while for the time being doing a PhD at Roskilde University on the subject of finding approriate ways to teach Mathematics in primary and lower secondary school given the technology of this century.

I have a high degree of interest in development of education and teaching in mathematics. My foci are on mathematics, psychology, cognition and learning. These fields all tie together my interest in making learning mathematics fun. When I teach, I like to use a lot of toys, games and IT in the classroom.

The past 30 years I have been exploring the area of computer algebra systems in mathematics education on all levels from primary school to teacher training.  

I used to play a bad guitar and tried to play other instruments - when I had the time and energy. Wrote a bunch of songs and some music mostly written, composed and programmed on computer. 

I am a longterm Rolling Stones freak although they are over the hill now (Keep Riff-hard).

And then there will be a lot of stuff in Danish aa I am from Denmark. So most is in my native local European dialect but let me know if there is anything you find so interesting that it will be worth having in English and I will make an English version.

 

Jeg arbejder på en ph.d. om passende undervisning i matematik givet den teknologiske udvikling. Vejen dertil har været omkring mange ting ingeniørstudier (klart aldrig afsluttet), læreruddannelse og en kandidatgrad i kommunikation og i matematik. Så af titel er jeg cand.comm og af stillingbetegnelse lektor.

Jeg var gennem en dekade ordstyrer i grundskolens, STX og seminariets matematikkonferencer på skolekom.

Og så er jeg Mathcad power user og med i PTC User Technical Committees, men jeg har længe ladet det ligge som det ligger, og i stedet lavet andre oversættelse til blandt andre Geogebra, DragonBox og har oversat en del af SMathStudio til dansk.

Jeg har arbejdet en hel del med it og matematikundervisning specielt med at støtte anvendelse af computer algebra systemer på alle niveauer i matematikundervisning. Men hvis jeg kigger tilbage på alt mit arbejde så spiller spil, legetøj og paradoksale fortællinger en meget større rolle.
