Gifted students in mathematical education : A qualitative study of how teachers describe their knowledge of gifted students and their mathematics education with these students in grades 1-3 (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to research how teachers describe their knowledge of gifted students and their mathematics education with these students in grades 1-3. Through qualitative interviews eight teachers has been asked how they identify gifted students, how they adjust the education and what support they would need to befriend gifted students in mathematics education.

The results indicate that the teachers are aware of the presence of gifted student in mathematics. The methods to identify and adjust teaching varied between the respondents and certain approaches was more favorable than others according to previous research. Common to all the respondents, however, was the desire for additional resource and commitment from the organization to help benefit gifted talents within mathematics. The conclusion is that today ́s teachers needs more knowledge about giftedness, as well as support in order to further promote learning for gifted students within the teaching of mathematics. 

Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka hur lärare beskriver sina kunskaper om särskilt begåvade elever och sin matematikundervisning med dessa elever i årskurs 1-3. Genom kvalitativa intervjuer har åtta verksamma lärare intervjuats om hur de identifierar särskilt begåvade elever, hur de anpassar undervisningen samt vilket stöd lärarna anser sig behöva för att undervisa särskilt begåvade elever i matematik. Resultatet visar att pedagogerna är medvetna om förekomsten av särskilt begåvade elever inom matematiken. Metoderna för att identifiera och därefter anpassa undervisningen varierade mellan respondenterna samt vissa tillvägagångssätt var mer gynnsamma än andra enligt tidigare forskning. Gemensamt för alla respondenter var dock önskan om ytterligare resurser och satsning från organisationen för att kunna hjälpa att gynna särskilt begåvade elever inom matematikundervisningen.

Utifrån detta kan man dra slutsatser om att dagens lärare behöver mer kunskap kring särskild begåvning, samt stöttning för att vidare kunna främja lärandet för särskilt begåvade elever inom matematikundervisningen.
