Mathematics in preschool : Educators work with the children 1-3 years old (English)
Abstract [en]

The study´s main purpose is to examine how three educators who work with children ages 1-3  in three different preschools working with mathematics in preschool. I have used a qualitative research in the form of interviews to obtain educators perspectives on their working. The educator´s stories about their working methods are the most important findings and it turned out that the interviewed educators was working fairly similar in terms of mathematics learning with the youngest children  in preschool. They both schedule mathematics in various activities and work with it in everyday situations. Their different approaches can be divided into five different categories which are: planned theme work and experiences, body and play, interaction and conversation, environment and materials, visualize mathematics.

Abstract [sv]

Studiens främsta syfte är att undersöka hur tre pedagoger som arbetar med barn i åldrarna 1-3 år på tre olika förskolor arbetar med matematik i förskolan.

Jag har använt mig utav en kvalitativ forskningsmetod i form av intervjuer för att få fram pedagogernas perspektiv på deras arbetssätt.

Pedagogernas berättelser om deras arbetsmetoder är studiens viktigaste resultat och det visade sig att de intervjuade pedagogerna arbetar någorlunda liknande när det gäller matematiklärandet med de yngsta barnen i förskolan. De både planerar in matematik i olika aktiviteter och jobbar med det i vardagliga situationer. Deras olika arbetssätt kan delas in i fem olika kategorier som är följande: planerade temaarbeten och upplevelser, kroppen och leken, samspel och samtal, miljön och material samt synliggöra matematik.
