Abstract [en]

Practice of mathematical proof increase the understanding of mathematics anddevelop creativity skills, problem solving, communication, logical thinking andreasoning which are all important tools not only within the subject of mathematicsbut also important tools for the society in which we are living. The aim of this projectwas to investigate whether it is accurate that proof and proving has a subordinate rolein mathematic education in the upper secondary school in Sweden. This was done byconstructing of a digital survey that was sent to approximately 100 practicingmathematics teachers in a normal size city located in the middle of Sweden. Theresults of the survey show that the teachers consider themselves comfortable withtheir own skills in teaching proof. Paradoxically, the results also show that there is alack of teaching of proof and proving in the upper secondary school, although the newcurriculum puts more focus on proof and proving.

Abstract [sv]

Matematiska bevis ger eleven en ökad förståelse för matematiken och utvecklarförmågor som kreativitet, problemlösning, kommunikation, logiskt tänkande ochresonemang, vilka alla är viktiga även utanför matematiken och för det samhälle vilever i. Syftet med detta arbete var att undersöka om det stämmer att bevis ochbevisföring har en underordnad roll i matematikundervisningen i den svenskagymnasieskolan vilket gjordes med hjälp av en enkät som skickades digitalt till cirka100 gymnasiematematiklärare i en medelstor stad i Mellansverige. Det visade sig attlärarna själva anser sig tillräckligt kunniga för att undervisa i bevis men det förefallerinte som att undervisningen är tillräcklig trots att dagens läroplaner sätter bevis istörre fokus än tidigare.
