  • research domains

    LIM focuses on 3 research themes :

    • EDIM (Epistemology and Teaching of Computer Science and Mathematics) :
      History of mathematics (history of numerical and written calculation,
      mathematics for engineers, nomographs, ethnomathematics) Teaching
      mathematics (teaching interactive geometry, interactive geometry
      and mobility, interactive geometry and coding, investigation approach)
      Learning Analytics (digital tablets, Educational Data Mining, Computersupported
      cooperative work)
    • ITA (I.T. and Applications) : Data-Knowledge-Decision (DCoD) (keywords :
      classification and extraction of patterns, knowledge engineering, humanmachine
      interaction) Mobile and Communicating I.T. (IMC) (keywords :
      software checking, collaborative group systems, communication
      networks)
    • MATHS (Mathematics) : Discrete mathematics (work on arithmetic and
      combinatorics, relations theory and algorithmics) Foundations of
      Mathematics and Analysis (philosophy of mathematics, game theory and
      analytic number theory, set theory)
  • key research programmes

    CLUSTOVERLAP : Development of overlapping classification systems

    SMA3 (SMA Cube) : Multi-Agent System for the Synergy of an Automated
    Mobile in the Land-Sea-Air environment

    METROLOGY : Metrology and web-traffic analysis in Reunion

    ETTML : Experiments with Touchscreen Tablets for Maths in Secondary Schools

    ICARO : Combined /Analysis/Operational Research interface

  • Main scientific collaborations

    ANR CIRMATH / NATIONAL NETWORK
    Promotion of mathematics in and through newspapers : history, regions and publics

    GIS ADIREM / NATIONAL NETWORK
    IREM (Institutes for research on mathmatics teaching) scientific interest group

    GDR DEMIPS / NATIONAL NETWORK
    Research group working on teaching methods and epistemology
    in mathematics, links with computer science and physics in
    higher education

    GDR HISTORY MATHS / NATIONAL NETWORK
    The aim is to promote the continuous development and quality
    of the history of mathematics by focusing on a unified approach
    to activities on the theme in France.

  • Main resarch facilities
    • SKUAD (Software Kit for Ubiquitous Agent Development)
      experimental platform
    • Rundroid (Android programme analyser) and NTI (noncompletion analyser) platforms
    • Ten Linux servers
