Preschool mathematics : The youngest preschool children mathematical learnings in the free game (English)
Abstract [en]

This study aims to visualize the youngest preschool children matematical learning in the free game. In my study the mathematics will be analyzed  based on the interactions children participate in, and how children experience mathematics through the lived body.

I have chosen to undertake a qualitative research in form of observations. Through this research method, I would approach the child's perspective, which means that i analyze the material that the children in the observations reveals to me as a researcher.

The results of the study show that children experience mathematics skills both through the lived body, as well as in interaction situations between children. The mathematics are around among us, all the time. This is very important to take into account for children's continued development of mathematical knowledge.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie syftar till att synliggöra de yngsta förskolebarnens matematiserande i den fria leken på förskolan. I min undersökning analyseras matematiken utifrån de samspelssituatiner barn deltar i, samt hur barn erfar matematik genom den levda kroppen.

Jag har valt att genomföra en kvalitativ forskningsmetod i form av observationer. Genom denna forskningsmetod vill jag närma mig barns perspektiv, vilket betyder att jag analyserar det material som barnen i observationerna synliggör för mig som forskare.

Resultatet i studien visar att barn erfar matematiska kunskaper både genom den levda kroppen, samt i samspelssituationer barn emellan. Matematiken finns runt ibland oss, hela tiden. Vilket är mycket viktigt att ta i beaktande vad gäller barns fortsatta utveckling av matematiska kunskaper.
