”Mathematics is more than numbers” : Pre-school teachers’ approach and way of working around mathematics in pre-school (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet var att undersöka hur fyra förskollärare uppfattade sitt arbete med matematik i förskolan med fokus på hinder och möjligheter. Syftet var också att undersöka om förskollärarnas syn och arbetssätt skiljde sig åt beroende på i vilken åldergrupp förskolläraren arbetade.

Jag valde att intervjua förskollärare eftersom jag tycker att de har en viktig roll i barns tidiga matematiska utveckling. Resultatet visar att förskollärarna anser att matematik är en viktig del i förskolan och att det är viktigt att barn tidigt kommer i kontakt med matematiken samt att matematik är mer än bara plus och minus men även att matematik inte behöver planeras utan finns ofta i alla förekommande moment i förskolans verksamhet. Skillnaderna jag upptäckte bland intervjuerna var att några antydde att det var brist på planeringstid, medan andra tyckte att de gjorde vad de kunde, eftersom matematiken inte så ofta behöver planeras utan finns naturligt i alla förskolans moment.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine how four pre-school teachers apprehended their mathematics work in pre-school with focus on obstacles and possibilities. The aim also was to examine if the pre-school teachers approach and operation methods differed depending on the age-group in which the pre-school teachers worked.

I chose to interview pre-school teachers because I believe that they have a significant role in childrens’ early mathematical development. The result shows that pre-school teachers find mathematics to be an important part in pre-school and that mathematics is necessary for children in an early age. The result also shows that mathematics includes so much more than just plus and minus, and that mathematics doesn’t mean extensive planning, instead it can be found in many of the situations that occur in the pre-school area. Disparities that I noticed among the interviews were indications of insufficient planning-time, but some of the interviewed stated that this was not really an issue because mathematics doesn’t mean planning as mentioned before.
