Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att titta närmare på ett specifikt elevfall i ett intensivmatematikprojekt i en kommun i Sverige. Det som undersöktes var erfarenheterna från intensivmatematik för en elev i matematiksvårigheter. De erfarenheter som valdes för studien var elevens, vårdnadshavarens, intensivlärarens och matematiklärarens.

Metoden som användes var kvalitativ och det empiriska materialet inhämtades genom halvstrukturerade intervjuer. I studien deltog fem respondenter. Resultatet analyseras med hjälp av kvalitativ analys.

Resultaten visade att de som deltagit i intensivprojektet i detta specifika fall var positiva till insatsens resultat. Detta visade sig stämma överens med tidigare erfarenheter från internationella och nationella projekt. Ett tydligt föräldraengagemang trädde fram som en viktig faktor för insatsens resultat men även andra faktorer som t.ex. elevens engagemang har haft påverkan.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to evaluate a specific student case in a mathematics project about one to one tuition. I wanted to explore/examine the experience of this one to one tuition for a student in special education need. The experiences examined were students, guardians, intense teacher, and math teacher. They were then compared with the experience of previous projects that have been studied through literature studies.

The method used was qualitative and the empirical material was collected through Semi-structured interviews. The study involved five respondents. The empirical results found also consisted literary studies based on two projects at the international level, three projects at the national level and one project at a local level. The result was analyzed by qualitative analysis. There was also a reading from a narrative analysis. When each of the respondents’ interviews was read with focus on each individual interview.

The results showed that all the respondents in this particular case were in favor of the intervention results. This proved to be consistent with past experience in the international and national as well as the local project. A clear parental involvement emerged as an important factor for the insert effect, but other factors have an impact on the operation of positive effect
