The way to become algebraic : This is a study with an material analysis for class 1-3. It is about how teaching materials present prealgebra (English)
Abstract [sv]

Undersökningar visar att svenska elevers resultat sjunker inom algebran och så har det varit i flera år. Inget ämne är så beroende av sitt läromedel som i ämnet matematik. Därför är syftet med denna uppsats att undersöka prealgebran i matematikböcker för årskurs 1-3 där grunden ska läggas inför algebran. Vad visar forskningen och är läromedlen utifrån forskningens resultat? Har läromedlen det som behövs för att eleverna ska kunna bli algebraiska? Är frågor som jag kommer att besvara. De grundlärobokserier som analyseras är vanligt förkommande i Sverige och är: Favorit matematik, Mästerkatten, Prima matematik, Eldorado och Mattedetektiverna. Resultatet visar dock att inget av läromedlen har alla delar som styrker eleverna till att bli algebraiska. 

Abstract [en]

Studies show that Swedish pupils' performance falls within the algebra and it have been that way for years. No subject is so dependent of their teaching materials as in mathematics. Therefore, the purpose of this essay is to examine prealgebran in math books for grades 1-3 where the basis must be laid before algebra. What does the research show? Are the teaching materials based on the research results? Do the teaching materials have what it takes for students to be algebraic? These questions are going to be answered in this essay. The books that are analyzed are common in Sweden and are: Favorite mathematics, Prima mathematics, Eldorado and the Math detectives. The result of this essay shows that none of the teaching materials have all the elements that the research show is important so the pupils can be algebraic.
