2015 (English)In: Development of mathematics teaching: Design, Scale, Effects: Proceedings of MADIF 9, The Ninth mathematics Education Research Seminar, Umeå, Februari 5-6, 2014, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
Researchers rarely discuss methodological issues in regard to preschoolmathematics education and if they do, they do not take their starting point fromreconceptualisations of what mathematics might be for preschool children. Thispaper presents as an analytical tool the “didaktic space” that arose whenresponding to issues related to the analysis of data collected in a Swedishpreschool. The issues that arose from categorising situations using Bishop’s sixactivities required some reconsiderations of the methodology in relationship tothe research questions. The paper discusses how methodological decisions canaffect the analysis and the future possibilities that the didaktic space offers.
