Tiivistelmä

It is generally agreed that mathematics is a critical skill for all. To support learning of mathematics, eye tracking can reveal why do students struggle with it. The method can be utilized to investigate different phases in the processing of mathematical representations. For example, the number of fixations and gaze points can inform about the amount of processing devoted to specific mathematical components. The scan path might be particularly informative with regard to viewing and comparison strategy. Altogether, based on the literature review eye tracking studies focusing on mathematics include topics such as arithmetic, word problems, dyscalculia, geometry, algebraic expressions and the role of representations in learning. However, despite of conducted research and promising results, recent eye tracking technology could be used at greater degree in studying ways to improve mathematical skills and detect misconceptions. This paper reviews published eye tracking studies focusing on mathematics, identifies directions for further research, and makes research based recommendations for ways to improve learning of mathematics.
