Matta Research Group

The primary goal of the Matta Research Group is to develop materials, technologies and methods to improve mathematics teaching and learning outcomes in the Aalto University School of Science. In order to support this goal, we research e-learning methodologies in mathematics. We are also actively involved in international collaboration and open source software development.


  • Abacus Matrial Bank, based at our department, is a project which aims at facilitating the use of computer aided assessment of mathematics and natural science assigments in higher education. It started as collaboration of the seven Finnish technology universities but it has since evolved into a major international project. It is based on problems predominantly implemented by using the STACK automatic assessment system. 

  • Pikku-M is an interactive self-study material for reviewing skills with high school mathematics (in Finnish).
