Matte på burk – a playful work method at the preschool : An interview study about six educators view on the working method 'Matte på burk' (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to find out what the educators view on the working method Matte på burk in preschool looked like. I also wanted to find out what the educators thought about the working method. My questions are:

  1. How does the educators in preschool experience the method Matte på burk?
  2. What do the educators in preschool believe that Matte på burk can give the children?

The study was carried out through a qualitative interview study with six educators. During the interviews with the educators it became apparent that the method not only focused on mathematical exercises. The educators also saw that interaction, learning, play and language became included in the method. Those findings are fundamental in the study and are regarded from different authors and theoretical perspectives. The conclusion I have drawn from the study is that the educators has been aware of how they can work with mathematics in a simple way. However, it would have been good if there were several levels of difficulty within the method. Because the way the cans works now, it is the same material in the cans regardless of their age. The educators believe that the method is an ideal tool for mathematics, they also think that the method is a good method to acquire knowledge in more subject areas.
