    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Vattenkraft är Islands främsta energikälla. År 2005 svarade vattenkraft för 80,8% av all elproduktion på Island (7015 Gwh). Vattenkraft påverkas av både variationer och förändringar i vattenflöden. READ MORE

  4. 4. Approaching Curriculum Resources Examining the potential of textbooks and teacher guides to support mathematics learning and teaching

    University dissertation from Mälardalen University

    Author : Linda Ahl; Mälardalens högskola.; Mälardalens högskola.; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Didactics; didaktik;

    Abstract : The driving forces of conducting the two studies presented in this thesis are: the strong position of curriculum resources in the mathematics classroom in general; teachers’ faith in curriculum resources to convey the intentions and goals of mathematics education; and the expected benefits to mathematics education through expanding the knowledge base of research in the area of curriculum resources in general, and teacher guides in particular. This thesis builds upon two studies conducted in Sweden. READ MORE
