A co-authored paper by Dr. Natthapoj Vincent Trakulphadetkrai (Associate Professor of Mathematics Education, University of Reading), which set out to examine Maltese teachers’ perceived barriers to and enablers for the integration of children’s literature in mathematics teaching, has recently been published in Taylor and Francis’s Cogent Education journal. The article is available free of charge here.


This paper is the second paper in an international series of research papers that Dr. Trakulphadetkrai collaborates with academics in different countries to investigate the extent to which teachers use children’s literature in mathematics teaching and their perceived barriers to and enablers for doing so. The first paper in the series focuses on Irish teachers and upcoming papers focus on teachers in Taiwan, Australia, Israel and England.
