Learning Disabilities in Mathematics – A Systematic Literature Study about Teaching Methods That Are Successful in the Educational Practice for Students Who Are Believed to Possess Learning Disabilities in Mathematics (English)
Abstract [sv]

Matematiksvårigheter är ett omdebatterat ämne i det svenska samhället. Elever som är i matematiksvårigheter kan ses som avvikande från normen och skolans förmåga att möta dessa elever minskar. När denna förmåga minskar används medicinska diagnoser i större utsträckning. Inlärningssvårigheter i matematik är en diagnos som det råder oenighet kring. Undervisningen ska anpassas till varje elevs behov vilket innebär att elever med inlärningssvårigheter i matematik ska få det stöd som behövs för att kunna utvecklas i matematikämnet. Därför är syftet att, genom en systematisk litteraturstudie, undersöka vilka undervisningsmetoder det finns som kan underlätta för elever som anses ha inlärningssvårigheter i matematik. Databasen som använts för insamling av artiklar var Web of Science. Två övergripande teman framkom från resultatet: Stöttning genom interaktion och Stöttning genom material. Utifrån dessa teman framkom flera undervisningsmetoder som fungerar i arbetet med elever som anses ha inlärningssvårigheter i matematik.

Abstract [en]

Difficulties in mathematics is a well debated topic in the Swedish society. Students in mathematical difficulties can be viewed as divergent from the norm and the school´s ability to meet the needs of these student´s decreases. The rate of students receiving a medical diagnosis increases when this ability decreases. There are uncertainties surrounding the diagnosis of learning disabilities (LD) in mathematics. The instruction should be adapted to meet the needs of every student, which means that students with learning disabilities in mathematics should receive the support that is necessary to progress in mathematics.

Thus, the purpose of the study is to, through a systematic literature study, examine the availability of teaching methods that can provide aid for students who are believed to have LD in mathematics. The database that was used to collect articles was Web of Science. Two general themes were discovered: Aid through interaction and Aid through materials. Several teaching methods that are successful in the educational practice of students who are believed to possess LD in mathematics was discovered.
