History and overview
The Department of didactics of Mathematics was established in 1984. The first head of the department was elected to be Assoc. Prof. Dr. Stasys Grigelionis. While heading the department, he paid a lot of attention to the issues of didactics of mathematics. Later Assoc. Prof. Dr. Jonas Kisielius was elected to be the head of the department in 1991-1993. He investigated pure mathematics; published various articles about the issues of education of mathematics; wrote several educational books for students as well as teachers. The third head of the department was elected to be Assoc. Prof. Dr. Vytautas Bernotas from 1993. In 2003 the department was renamed to Department of didactics of Mathematics and Informatics. Presently it is headed by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Juozas Banionis. The department currently offers Master study programme in Education of Mathematics.
