Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva olika arbetssätt som lärare använder i sin matematikundervisning, och vilka faktorer som vissa lärare anser styr vilka arbetssätt de väljer att arbeta med, samt att visa på hur vissa lärare anser att de har ändrat sin undervisning sedan de deltagit i Matematiksatsningen, som är en satsning från regeringen att förbättra matematikundervisningen, eller under sin tid som lärare.

I den teoretiska bakgrunden beskrivs ramfaktorteorin, vilket är yttre faktorer som kan påverka skolan som organisation, exempelvis i form av tidsfördelning, klasstorlek och andra ekonomiska resurser. Jag beskriver också den sociokulturella teorin och hur Piaget och Vygotskij beskriver barns olika intelligensnivåer.

Undersökningens datainsamling skedde i form av kvalitativ halvstrukturerad intervju, där jag utgick från en intervjuguide med frågor för att ta reda på vilka arbetssätt dessa lärare säger sig arbeta med och vilka faktorer de anser påverkar deras val av arbetssätt. Samt hur de anser att Matematiklyftet har påverkat deras sätt att undervisa och hur de anser att de har ändrat sin undervisning under tiden som lärare. Resultatet av intervjuerna kan kort sammanfattas att de intervjuade lärarna arbetar med många arbetssätt men i olika utsträckning, och att faktorer som påverkar valet av arbetssätt också ser olika ut, i stora drag nämner de faktorer som gruppstorlek, gruppsammansättning, miljö och material. De intervjuade lärarna beskriver också att de under sin tid som lärare och framförallt efter Matematiklyftet har dragit ner på drillövningar och istället jobbar mer med problemlösninguppgifter.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to describe the different working methods that teachers use in their teaching of mathematics, and the factors that some teachers believe effect the choice of their working methods.  The interviewed teachers also describe how they think that they have changed their teaching since they participated in Math Initiative, which is an effort to improve mathematics education from the government, or their time as teachers.

 

In the theoretical background I describe ramfaktorteorin, which are external factors that can affect the school as an organization, such as scheduling, class size and other economic resources.  I also describe the socio-cultural theory and how Piaget and Vygotskij describes children's different levels of intelligence.

 

I collected data for my thesis in the form of qualitative semi-structured interview, which was based on an interview guide. With these questions I wanted to find out what different work methods these teachers say they use in their teaching in mathematics. What factors do they believe affect their choice of working methods? And how they think that Mathematics Initiative has affected their way of teaching and how they believe that they have changed their teaching during their time as a teacher. The result of the interviews can be summarized that the interviewed teachers work with many different working methods in very varying degrees, and the factors that affect the choice of working methods also varying, they mention factors  group size, group composition, environment and materials. The interviewed teachers also describes that during their time as a teacher and especially after the Mathematics Initiative they have drawn down on drill exercises and instead work more with problem-solving tasks.
