  1. 1. Mathematical Reasoning : In physics and real-life context

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg

    Author : Helena Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Creative mathematical reasoning; Descriptive statistics; Differential item functioning; Figurative context; Imitative reasoning; Mathematical Reasoning Requirements; Mathematics tasks; National tests; Physics tasks; Real-life context; T-test; Upper secondary school;

    Abstract : 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

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

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg

    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

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Mathematical Learning Disability Cognitive Conditions, Development and Predictions

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Rickard Östergren; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Mathematical learning disability; dyscalculia; mathematical cognition; number sense; Matematiska inlärningssvårigheter; dyskalkyli; matematisk kognition; antalsuppfattning;

    Abstract : 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.
