Mathematics tuition at the interface between Finland and Sweden (English)
Abstract [sv]

Åland är en autonom del av Finland, där omkring hälften av lärarna utbildats i Sverige och hälften i Finland. Den lilla regionen har skördat stora framgångar inom matematik i internationella kunskapsmätningar de senaste åren. Denna studie syftar till att undersöka hur åländska lågstadielärare förhåller sig till tre aspekter av skillnad mellan svensk och finsk matematikundervisning, samt hur detta tar sig uttryck och påverkar undervisningen. Genom kvalitativa intervjuer med sju lågstadielärare, samtliga verksamma på Åland, framträder berättelser om matematikundervisning som i viss mån kan härledas till vad som kan betraktas som en finsk undervisningspraktik. Resultatet är dock inte entydigt. Istället åskådliggörs att lärarna baserar sina didaktiska val på en tydlig medvetenhet om olika sätt att förhålla sig till matematikundervisningen. Detta gör att undervisningen, oavsett karaktär, formas och omformas på välmotiverade didaktiska val, vilket skapar en trygghet och en tilltro till dem som lärare.

Abstract [en]

The Aland Islands is an autonomous part of Finland, where approximately half of the teachers has been educated in Sweden whereas the other half has been educated in Finland. The small region has been successful in international knowledge-measuring studies monitoring mathematics in the last couple of years. The aim of this study is to explore how primary school teachers on The Aland Islands relates to three aspects of difference between Swedish and Finnis mathematics tuition, and how this shows and influences the tuition. Via qualitative interviews with seven primary school teachers, all active on The Aland Islands, tales emerge showing a mathematics tuition practice that to a certain extent is eligible to derive to what is perceived to be Finnish tuition practice. However the results are not unambiguous. Instead it appears that the teachers base their didactic choices on significant awareness of different ways to approach mathematics tuition. This leads to the tuition being shaped and re-shaped based upon insightful didactic choices, which creates confidence and belief in them as teachers.
