A very important part of NCM’s work is the journal Nämnaren and the related series of books Nämnaren TEMA with titles such as Uppslagsboken (Book of Ideas), Matematik i förskolan (Mathematics in Preschool) and Algebra för alla (Algebra for All). The editorial board for the journals is also responsible for the Kangaroo competition together with Kungl. Vetenskapsakademien (Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences). Problems from Kangaroo competitions that have previously taken place can be downloaded from the web site – together with examples of solutions, as well as ideas and proposals for further work. Strävorna (Aims to strive for) is a part of Nämnaren on the net where we publish proposals for pupil activities and articles arranged by ”goals to aim for” that are laid down in the syllabuses on mathematics.
Under the heading Arkiv N (Archive N) you can also download various documents about Nämnaren from Uppslaget (Ideas) and DPL, (Dialogues on problem solving). We also publish the mathematics journal Normat (Journal of Nordic Mathematics) in conjunction with the society of mathematicians in the Nordic area and Institut Mittag-Leffler, in addition to the research journal NOMAD (Nordic Studies in Mathematics Education) together with Nordic research networks in mathematics education. Both journals have separate sections on the web site containing information on current contents etc.
Books and reports
In addition to these three journals and Nämnaren-TEMA, we publish reports, reviews of research and support material. Some of our new publications are the books Matematikverkstad (Mathematics Workshop) and Små barns matematik (Mathematics for Small Children) which together with Nämnaren TEMA Matematik i förskolan (Mathematics in the Preschool) are the result of a nationwide pilot project. A recent addition is the book Lära och undervisa matematik - internationella perspektiv (International Perspectives on Learning and Teaching Mathematics). It contains translations of articles and revised versions of articles previously published in the NCM book International Perspectives on Learning and Teaching Mathematics. Amongst our other titles, the following can be mentioned Familjematematik (Mathematics for the Family) and Läs- och skrivsvårigheter och lärande i matematik (Reading and Writing Difficulties and Learning in Mathematics). Some of the books we are responsible for have been published by the National Agency for Education and the Swedish National Agency for School Improvement.
