  1. 1. Speaking of Geometry A study of geometry textbooks and literature on geometry instruction for elementary and lower secondary levels in Sweden, 1905-1962, with a special focus on professional debates

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Matematiska institutionen

    Author : Johan Prytz; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematics; geometry instruction; mathematics education; Sweden; textbook; curriculum; professional; elementary school; secondary school; history of mathematics education; history of mathematics; history of education; MATEMATIK;

    Abstract : This dissertation deals with geometry instruction in Sweden in the period 1905-1962. The purpose is to investigate textbooks and other literature used by teachers in elementary schools (ES) and lower secondary schools (LSS) – Folkskolan and Realskolan – connection to geometry instruction.

  2. 2. Approaching Proof in a Community of Mathematical Practice

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Matematiska institutionen

    Author : Kirsti Hemmi; Stockholms universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; proof; university mathematics; community of practice; participation; reification; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to describe how students encounter proof in a community of mathematical practice at a mathematics department and how they are drawn to share mathematicians’ views and knowledge of proof. Considering the department as a community of practice where the joint enterprise is learning mathematics in a broad sense made it possible to perceive the newcomers as active participants in the practice.

  3. 3. Mathematics textbooks for teaching An analysis of content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge concerning algebra in Swedish upper secondary education

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Institutionen för pedagogik, kommunikation och lärande

    Author : Wang Wei Sönnerhed; [2011]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; mathematics textbooks; school algebra; solving methods; factorization; solving quadratic equations; mathematics teaching; content knowledge; pedagogical content knowledge; geometrical models; algebra history; embedded teaching trajectories;

    Abstract : In school algebra, using different methods including factorization to solve quadratic equations is one common teaching and learning topic at upper secondary school level. This study is about analyzing the algebra content related to solving quadratic equations and the method of factorization as presented in Swedish mathematics textbooks with subject matter content knowledge (CK) and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) as analytical tools.

  4. 4. Analysis of the phase space, asymptotic behavior and stability for heavy symmetric top and tippe top

    University dissertation from Matematiska institutionen

    Author : Markus Sköldstam; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; symmetric top; tippe top; vertical rotation; truncated sphere; asymptotic trajectories; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK;

    Abstract : In this thesis we analyze the phase of the heavy symmetric top and the tippe top. These tops are two examples of physical systems for which the usefulness of integrals of motion and invariant manifolds, in phase space picture analysis, can be illustratedIn the case of the heavy symmetric top, simplified proofs of stability of the vertical rotation have been perpetuated by successive textbooks during the last century.

  5. 5. Textbooks in mathematics education a study of textbooks as the potentially implemented curriculum

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Monica Johansson; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Mathematics Education; Matematik och lärande;

    Abstract : Textbooks are a most important feature of teaching mathematics in the classroom, in Sweden as well as in many other countries. For teachers and students, the textbooks often determine what is school mathematics and also what is mathematics. READ MORE
