  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;

    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. Assessing mathematical creativity comparing national and teacher-made tests, explaining differences and examining impact

    University dissertation from Umeå : Matematik och matematisk statistik, Umeå universitet

    Author : Jesper Boesen; Umeå universitet.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; Mathematical reasoning; creative reasoning; moderate high stake; teacher made tests; imitative reasoning; assessment; impact; influence; effect; mathematical competence; national tests;

    Abstract : Students’ use of superficial reasoning seems to be a main reason for learning difficulties in mathematics. It is therefore important to investigate the reasons for this use and the components that may affect students’ mathematical reasoning development. READ MORE

  3. 3. The influence of national curricula and national assessments on teachers’ beliefs about the goals of school mathematics

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Björn Palmberg; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; mathematical competence; competency goals; policy; reform; national curriculum; national assessment; teachers’ goals; teachers’ belief change; didactics of mathematics; matematikdidaktik;

    Abstract : What students should learn in school and therefore also what teachers should teach is an important issue worldwide. Mathematics teaching (and teaching in other subjects) is often regulated by some form of governing text in a written curriculum communcating a set of standards. READ MORE

  4. 4. Supporting mathematical reasoning through reading and writing in mathematics : : making the implicit explicit

    University dissertation from Malmö högskola

    Author : Cecilia Segerby; Malmö University.; Malmö University.; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; Humanities Social Sciences; Educational Design Research; Grade 4; Mathematic reasoning; Reading; Reciprocal Teaching Model; Systemic Functional Linguistic; Writing;

    Abstract : In school mathematics, mathematical reasoning with an emphasis on language is considered an important competence. A student’s competence to reason in mathematics requires specific reading and writing skills, but suitable activities to support these skills are difficult to find. READ MORE

  5. 5. Harnessing teachers’ perspectives Recognizing mathematically highly able pupils and orchestrating teaching for them in a diverse ability classroom

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Author : Elisabet Mellroth; Yvonne Liljekvist; Jorryt van Bommel; Héctor Pérez Prieto; Marianne Nolte; [2018]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; High ability; Gifted education; Professional development; Mathematics; Differentiated education; Inclusive education; Teachers; Positioning theory; Pedagogiskt arbete; Educational Work;

    Abstract : There is a lack of research that explores teachers’ perspectives on teaching highly able pupils (HAPs) in the diverse ability classroom. Instead, pupils’ perspectives are common, such studies often concluding that teachers need more professional development or that they fail to support HAPs. READ MORE
