The presentation will provide an overview of the progress of the PhD project "Teaching fractions in Japanese schools in Denmark and Sweden”. I will firstly introduce what I have done in my PhD project so far, and secondly, I will present my first paper: how the contents related to fractions, as described in the official curriculum issued by the Japanese Ministry of Education, are realised in the Japanese school in Demark. Finally, I will briefly touch upon my second paper: learning to speak mathematically at a Japanese school in Sweden, and the plan for the rest of my PhD project.
