Mathematics in Preeschool : A comparison study between a traditional Preschool and a Montessori Preeschool (English)
Abstract [en]

This work is about how teachers describe their work with mathematics in a traditional nursery school and a Montessori preschool. Another aim is to study how children mathematise on the two different preschools and to see if there are any differences between the various educational theories and practices mathematising. I have used two methods wich is interviews with preschool teachers, and observation of the children. The results of my study was that differences exist but the biggest difference is the material that Montessori uses. The difference between the teachers' way of teaching mathematics is to Montessori preschool places great emphasis on the material and how it is used, while in the traditional preschool puts the emphasis on learning through interaction with others. The traditional pre-school does not have the specific and concrete material, but where we see much more of the social interaction in the game and how their learning develops with others. How they develop their imagination and creativity in their own way.
