1. Mathematical Reasoning : In physics and reallife context
University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology and University of GothenburgAbstract : This thesis is a compilation of four papers in which mathematical reasoning is examined in various contexts, in which mathematics is an integral part. It is known from previous studies that a focus on rote learning and procedural mathematical reasoning hamper students’ learning of mathematics. READ MORE

4. Assessing mathematical creativity comparing national and teachermade tests, explaining differences and examining impact
University dissertation from Umeå : Matematik och matematisk statistik, Umeå universitetAbstract : 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

5. Mathematical Learning Disability Cognitive Conditions, Development and Predictions
University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic PressAbstract : The purpose of the present thesis was to test and contrast hypotheses about the cognitive conditions that support the development of mathematical learning disability (MLD). Following hypotheses were tested in the thesis: a) domain general deficit, the deficit is primarily located in the domain general systems such as the working memory, b) number sense deficit, the deficit is located in the innate approximate number system (ANS), c) numerosity coding deficit, the deficit is located to a exact number representation system, d) access deficit, the deficit is in the mapping between symbols and the innate number representational system (e.
