  1. 1. Approaching Mathematical Discourse : Two analytical frameworks and their relation to problem solving interactions

    Author : Andreas Ryve; Kimmo Eriksson; Inger Wistedt; Anna Sfard; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Didactics of Mathematics; Mathematics Education; Analytical approaches; Communication; Concept maps; Contextualization; Discourse; Engineering students; Higher Education; Intentional analysis; Methodological framworks; Problem solving; Prospective teachers; Student teachers; Teacher education; Theoretical frameworks; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; Matematik tillämpad matematik;

    Abstract : The driving force of conducting the two studies presented in this thesis is to examine ways that conceptual understanding and problem solving could be part of mathematics teaching, and through that, part of students' mathematical knowledge. The specific aims of the thesis are: 1) to characterize the classroom discourse of two, apparently similar, problem solving courses in teacher education and 2) to discuss the possibilities of developing two analytical approaches - the communicational approach to cognition and the dialogical approach - used for studying mathematical discourse.

    Abstract : This thesis reports on two different investigations.The first is a systematic review of pedagogical and organizational practices associated with gifted pupils’ education in mathematics, and on the empirical basis for those practices. READ MORE

  3. 3. Becoming recognised as mathematically proficient : The role of a primary school teacher education programme

    Author : Andreas Ebbelind; Jeppe Skott; Gellert Uwe; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematics education; teacher education; primary school; prospective teacher; identity development; Patterns of Participation; ethnography.; Mathematical Education; Matematikdidaktik;

    Abstract : This study focuses on upper primary prospective teachers in their first years of a teacher education programme in Sweden, in particular, a 20-week mathematics education course. It aims to contribute with insight into how, or even if, experience from a teacher education programme and other relevant past and present social practices and figured worlds plays a role in prospective generalist teachers’ imaginings of themselves as primary mathematics teachers-to-be and potentially shapes their identity.

  5. 5. Difficult to read or difficult to solve? : The role of natural language and other semiotic resources in mathematics tasks

    Author : Anneli Dyrvold; Magnus Österholm; Ewa Bergqvist; Johan Lithner; Candia Morgan; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; mathematics education; multisemiotics; task text; difficulty; mathematical reading ability; didactics of mathematics; matematikdidaktik; word; image; symbol; mathematical notation; cohesion; Mathematics; Matematik; Pedagogik; Education; Linguistics; Lingvistik;

    Abstract : When students solve mathematics tasks, the tasks are commonly given as written text, usually consisting of natural language, mathematical notation and different types of images. This is one reason why reading and interpreting such texts are important parts of being mathematically proficient, at least within the school context. READ MORE
