Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The purpose with this essay was to see how the mathematic books showed sexual roles in pictures and if they confirm or deny the traditional sexual roles that school shall counteract according to the curriculum, Lgr11. The questions I focused on were this:
- How sexual roles are introduced on the pictures in the chosen mathematic books?
- What are the similarities and differences between the presentations of the gender in the chosen education materials?
I used a semiotic method to analyze my pictures. The central parts of my theories were how we think that gender is created using characteristics and attribute. In my analyze I found out that the pictures in one of the book series showed more stereotypic sexual roles than the other book series did.
