Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to gain knowledge of what preschool teachers think that mathematics in kindergarten is, and if the revised curriculum which came in July 2010 changed their approach. The survey consists of interviews of five preschool teacher and an aspiring preschool teacher. They have shared their experiences and knowledge about what they regard as mathematics in kindergarten. I asked how they interpret the new curriculum for math and if it has made them work in a different way or if they do as the used to. The results that came up where that they felt that their views on mathematics have changed. One of my informants said "I have put on the mathematics glasses now". They felt that they worked more deliberately now, that it is mathematics they are doing and they have gained a greater understanding of what mathematics is. Now they can see the mathematics in everyday life and in everything they do with the kids. And they felt that the new curriculum has become clearer, it is easier to read and they now sees their obligations received from the Government.
