Abstract [en]

The aim is to examine how students with attention difficulties may demonstrate their mathematical understanding through visual representations. A curiosity about how students think about mathematics, national tests and Concepts cartoons has also permeated the study.

 

With help of observations combined with interviews and actively work for a week, the study shows an idea of how visual representations can help students with concentration difficulties to stay focused on their tasks.

 

I chose a selection of pupils to do some mathematical tasks from the national tests which they had not been able to solve before. Now in the form of Concepts cartoons, which I designed, they managed to solve the same mathematics data. In my study treatment and interaction reveals as key pillars for a successful educational work with the students with concentration difficulties. Thus, all pupils who previously have been unable to solve these assignments on the National test were now able to show their mathematical understanding supported by visual representations.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet var att undersöka hur elever med koncentrationssvårigheter kan visa sin matematiska förståelse med hjälp av visuella representationer inspirerade av Begreppsbubblor. En nyfikenhet kring hur elever tänker om matematik, nationella prov och Begreppsbubblor har också genomsyrat studien. En av mina frågeställningar rör även hur lärare bemöter koncentrationssvaga elever i verksamheten.

 

Med hjälp av observationer och intervjuer med undervisande lärare fick jag en bild av hur visuella representationer kan hjälpa koncentrationssvaga elever att behålla fokus på sina uppgifter och vilken roll lärarens bemötande har.

 

Jag valde att låta ett urval elever göra om några textuppgifter från de nationella proven, som de inte klarat tidigare, men nu med stöd av Begreppsbubblor, som jag själv konstruerat. I studien framkommer bemötande och interaktion som viktiga grundpelare för ett lyckat pedagogiskt arbete med koncentrationssvaga elever. Samtliga elever som inte klarat av de valda textuppgifterna på det nationella provet kunde med stöd av visuella representationer visa sin matematiska förståelse och därmed lösa uppgifterna.
