Undervisning och lärande av matematik i Indien (Swedish)
Abstract [sv]

Våra tre månader i Indien har resulterat i en studie av olika perspektiv på lärande, inom ämnet matematik. De synsätt på lärande som vi observerade hos de indiska lärarna har kopplats till studiens fyra valda perspektiv;

det behavioristiska perspektivet, det kognitiva perspektivet, det pragmatiska perspektivet och det sociokulturella perspektivet. Fältstudien genomfördes i en skola i den södra delstaten Kerala. Elever och lärare på skolan deltog under våra observationer, intervjuer och undervisningsförsök. Vår slutsats är att undervisningen innehöll influenser från alla fyra valda perspektiv, och att somliga perspektiv förekom mer än andra.

Abstract [en]

Our three months in India included a field study of different perspectives on learning the subject of mathematics. The chosen perspectives were;

the behaviouristic perspective, the cognitive perspective, the pragmatic perspective and the socio-cultural perspective. The study was implemented with teachers and students at a public school in the state of Kerala, which is situated in the southernmost part of the country. They participated in our observations, interviews and teaching experiments. We sought to ascertain which of the four chosen learning perspectives the faculty and students at the host school use for educating. Our conclusion is that the observed teaching methods had influences from all four chosen perspectives, some more than others.
