Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka och visa flera sätt att undervisa i matematik genom problemlösning samt att undersöka vilken inverkan forskning inom området har i praktiken. I undersökningen ingick intervjuer och lektionsobservationer hos tre lärare som systematiskt använder sig av problemlösning i sin undervisning. Resultaten från undersökningen visar att problemlösning kan användas på olika sätt och med olika syfte i matematikundervisningen. De visar också att det finns både gemensamma och särskiljande aspekter mellan de observerade lektionerna samt mellan lärarnas synsätt på problemlösning. Dessutom tyder resultaten på en viss sammankoppling mellan lärarnas undervisning och de forskningsresultat som finns rapporterade i litteraturen. Samtidigt indikerar resultaten att varje lärare har utvecklat en personlig undervisningsform utifrån sina egna förutsättningar som i några aspekter inte överensstämmer med de rapporterade resultaten inom området.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to explore and give examples of teaching mathematics through problem solving and to investigate the impact of research in the field of teachers' practice. The investigation included interviews and lesson observations with three teachers which systematically use problem solving in their teaching. The results of my investigation showed that problem solving can be used in different ways and with different purposes in the mathematics education. They also showed that there are both common and distinctive aspects in the observed practices of teaching and in the teachers' approach to problem solving. In addition, the results suggest some connection between the teachers' teaching and the research findings reported in the literature. However, the results also indicate that each teacher has developed a personalized form of teaching according to their individual circumstances and that their practice may in some aspects differ from those results reported about teaching through problem solving.
