  1. 1. Exercising Mathematical Competence: Practising Representation Theory and Representing Mathematical Practice

    Author : Anna Ida Säfström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical competence; exercising competencies; young children; whole number arithmetic; tertiary level; proving; highest weight representation; tensor product decomposition; skew-symmetric matrix; moment map; infinite dimensional unitary representation; highest weight representation; proving; moment map; tensor product decomposition; tertiary level; young children; infinite dimensional unitary representation; whole number arithmetic; skew-symmetric matrix; exercising competencies;

    Abstract : This thesis assembles two papers in mathematics and two papers in mathematics education. In the mathematics part, representation theory is practised. Two Clebsch-Gordan type problems are addressed. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Västerås : Mälardalens högskola

    Author : Andreas Ryve; Kimmo Eriksson; Inger Wistedt; Anna Sfard; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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

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

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Andreas Ebbelind; Jeppe Skott; Gellert Uwe; [2020]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; 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.
