National exams in mathematics are important pedagogical texts which have been published annually for decades. They provide an interesting corpus for a project investigating the development of representation of diversity in mathematics tasks. Also, there are many reasons for including several diversity dimensions when researching diversity, e.g., gender, ethnicity, religion, functionality, sexuality, and class. Based on previous research on diversity in pedagogical texts, I discuss some of the methodological considerations that must be made when designing such a project.
