Abstract [en]

The aim of this qualitative case study is to describe and understand what perception students have about their learning in mathematics, and how mathematics teaching can provide the preconditions for all students' mathematical development. The theoretical framework of the study describes a growth mindset as a success factor in mathematics learning. A growth mindset can be promoted with qualitative good teaching based on research and a formative way of working. With empirical evidence from classroom observations, as well as student and teacher interviews, the student's ability to study mathematics with regard to these factors was examined. The result reveals a mathematics education based on research and proven experience, which in many ways promotes learning and stimulates a growth mindset. However, the study is unambiguous that students can be more exposed to challenges in their learning. Teaching should also be conducted so that mistakes and an analysis of these are seen as part of the learning. In this regard, a good social climate in the classroom and good relationships are important. The result reveals that the majority of students experiencing insecurity to express mathematical thoughts, in danger of being judged, revealed or abandoned.
