Mathematics Workshop : -        how can teachers and students work there? (English)
Abstract [en]

The starting point of this work has been to get knowledge about teachers working in a mathematical workshop with the students. I also wanted to investigate what students think about math, both within the workshop and in traditional teaching.

To achieve this I chose to interview a teacher in charge within the framework of a mathematical workshop, and six students in the 5th grade. I also did a lesson observation with the purpose to see how well the teacher’s tutoring agrees with the results of the interview.

In this study I have discovered that the lessons in the mathematical workshop are planned after what the students are working with in the textbook. The teacher opens the lessons with the whole class and then splits it up in groups. In the interview the respondent conveys the importance of discussions among the students where they can explain their thoughts, especially for the weaker students that, thanks to the discussions are able to show their knowledge more. This is something I did not see during my lesson observation, however. The students also seemed to miss this when I spoke to them in the interview. They describe that they cannot see the connection between what they learn in the workshop and the textbook.
