Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate how teachers work with basic mathematics combined with aesthestic learning processes such as arts and music in grades F-1. The essay will compare teachers’ perceptions regarding aestethic learning processes when using art and music are used in the teaching of mathematics. We have used the following questions:

  • Do teachers use aesthetic learning processes in the forms of arts and music in the basic teaching of mathematics and if so, how and in what way?
  • What importance has aesthetic learning processes in the forms of arts and music in basic teaching of mathematics according to the teachers?
  • What advantages and disadvantages do the teachers find with combinding the basic mathematics with arts and music?

The study is based on a qualitative method with five interviews and eight observations. Our theoretical approach in this study is grounded on the phenomenological perspective and John Deweys progressive pedagogy about children’s learning processes. The result shows that the teachers have a positive attitude towards aesthetic learning processes when combining the basic mathematics teaching with arts and music. When comparing the different mathematics teaching methods it shows similarities and differences in the way teachers use art and music in the teaching of basic mathematics. Another result is that all of the teachers in some extent use arts in the teaching of mathematics, however there are only two teachers that combines the teaching of mathematics with music.
