Outdoor mathematics : How does the research field look like and what does the research say? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det här är en litteraturstudie som undersöker hur forskningsfältet kring utomhusmatematik ser ut, samt de olika resultat som forskningen kommit fram till.

Genom systematiska sökningar har tretton artiklar i sin helhet valts ut för granskning, samt nio artiklar som ej finns tillgängliga i fulltext. Dessa inkluderades för att bidra till en mer komplett beskrivning av karaktären för hela det aktuella forskningsfältet. Resultatet visar framför allt att det finns relativt lite forskning inom området. Endast fem artiklar kunde bedömmas uppfylla kriterierna som vetenskapliga och därmed får dessa stå till grund för att visa vad forskningen för området säger. Dessa artiklar konkluderade att elever spontant upplever utomhusmatematik som roligt, att de lär sig lättare samt får en djupare förståelse för matematiken. En artikel kunde även påvisa att de elever som har utomhusmatematik lär sig mer, än de som endast har traditionell klassrumsundervisning.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this literature study is to examine what the research field around outdoor mathematics looks like, as well as present the results, research findings and scientific conclusions.

Through systematic searches thirteen articles have been found in their entirety selected for audit, as well as nine articles that are not available in full text - these were included in order to contribute to a more complete description of the nature of the entire current field of research. The results primarily show that relatively little research and scientific studies have been done in the area of outdoor mathematics. Only five articles could meet the criteria as scientific, and therefore these may be considered the basis of presenting what the research in this field says. The articles concluded that students own spontaneous reaction to outdoor math is that it is fun, that they learn the subject of math easier, and that they get a deeper understanding of mathematics as a whole. One article was also able to demonstrate that the students who are subjected to the learning method of outdoor mathematics, learned more than those who only have access to traditional classroom teaching.
