Abstract [en]

This study is about children in grade three with talent in mathematics and how to develop their talent in mathematics lessons. My questions are how to teach with regard on the way teachers work and used material? How do teacher pay attention to children with talents in mathematics and how they work to motivate and keep developing the children? The main method I used was qualitative observations backed up by interviews. The study was done in two Swedish schools. For interpreting the results I used the sociocultural perspective and motivation theory. The result shows that both schools work a lot with communication to develop mathematical abilities and to identify those students with talent in mathematics. The main difference between the two schools is that one uses material from the grade above while the other uses extra material from the same grade to develop those students. Otherwise both schools were quite equal, they worked with problem solving, mathematics games and digital tools such as computers.
