To develop the learning of mathematics : A study of how teachers through education develops pupil´s learning in primary school (English)
The most important influencing factor in student learning is the teacher. It is not so much what the teacher does, but what the teacher makes his students to do that is important. That is what this study investigates. Which workingmethods are used and how are they varied? It also investigates how formative assessment is used in practice. Which formative elements can be found in the teachers practice and what methods are used? As data collection methods interviews, classroom observations and a student questionare have been used. The results shows that teachers who vary their working methods and who use interactive methods have more positive pupils. The result also shows that the teachers use formative assessment but in varied extent. No teaching method can safely be said to be the best but one thing is certain - varied teaching promotes pupils learning!
