Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka om hur praktiska och estetiska ämnen kan stödja i matematikundervisningen. Undersökningen gjordes genom intervjuer och observationer på en grundskola i Barbados i fyra olika klasser, detta för att också få en uppfattning om hur användningen av dessa ämnen kan variera i de olika årskurserna. I studien behandlas vad praktiska och estetiska ämnen är och hur viktiga de är att integrera i matematikundervisningen för elevers inlärning, förståelse och lust att lära. Dessutom granskas lärarnas attityder till dessa ämnen som stöd och hur de förhåller sig till dem i sin undervisning.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate how practical and aesthetic subjects can be used to support the mathematics education. The research consists of observations and interviews in four classes at an elementary school in Barbados to get an understanding of how the use of these subjects also can vary between the different ages. This study consider what practical and aesthetic subjects are and how important they are to integrate into mathematics teaching for students' learning, understanding and desire to learn. The teachers' attitudes to these subjects as support and how they relate to them in their teaching will also be considered.
