Mathematics in preschool : Teachers visualising mathematics in the sandbox (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att bidra med kunskap om hur pedagogerna synliggör matematiken genom lek i sandlådan tillsammans med barnen. Två metoder har valts för att kunna undersöka detta vilka är ostrukturerade observationer och semistrukturerade intervjuer. Dessa metoder valdes för att kunna komplettera varandra för att få fram ett så tydligt resultat som möjligt.

I resultatet framgår det att pedagogernas medvetenhet om vilken matematik som sker i sandlådan har stor betydelse. Pedagogerna bör vara delaktiga i barnens sandlådelek för att vara med och benämna olika matematiska begrepp som förekommer i leken. Genom att pedagogerna benämner matematiken så synliggörs den för barnen. Artefakter som finns i sandlådan såsom hinkar, spadar och former är till god hjälp för barnens matematiska lärande.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study is to provide knowledge about how teachers visualize mathematics by playing in the sandbox with the children. Two approaches have been adopted in order to investigate this which are unstructured observations and semi-structured interviews. These methods were chosen to complement each other to produce the clearest results possible.

The results show that teachers' awareness of the mathematics that occur in the sandbox is of great importance. The teachers should be involved in the children´s sandbox play to participate and designate various mathematical concepts that appear. By teachers terms mathematics is made visible on the children. Artefacts found in the sandbox, such as buckets, shovels and forms are helpful to children's mathematical learning.
