Abstract [en]

 The purpose of this essay is to examine some teachers' reflections on the importance of mathematics in preschool and the importance of language, communication and conceptualization in children's mathematics learning. The study's methodology is based on a qualitative approach, where I interviewed four teachers who work with the 6 -year-olds in two different municipal schools. The study shows the importance of language and communication in mathematics learning. It also shows the importance of the teacher's attitude as well as the educational environment to capture children's curiosity and interest.  

Purpose and Issues: The purpose of this study is to investigate some pedagogue’s descriptions of mathematics in the preschool class. The study is also interested in how teachers describe their efforts to capture the children's curiosity and interest in mathematics.

 My questions that I decided to start from in my study are as follows:

  • How children learn mathematics in everyday life according to the teachers?
  • How do teachers captures and highlights children's curiosity and interest in mathematics?
