  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

    Author : Johan Prytz; Staffan Rodhe; Anders Öberg; Sten Kaijser; Jan van Maanen; Patricio Herbst; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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. Becoming recognised as mathematically proficient : The role of a primary school teacher education programme

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

  3. 3. Chordal and Complete Structures in Combinatorics and Commutative Algebra

    Author : Eric Emtander; Jörgen Backelin; Ralf Fröberg; Bernd Sturmfels; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Betti numbers; chordal hypergraphs; complete hypergraphs; hypercycle; line hypergraph; numerical monoids; positive affine monoids; Other mathematics; Övrig matematik; matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : This thesis is divided into two parts. The first part is concerned with the commutative algebra of certain combinatorial structures arising from uniform hypergraphs. The main focus lies on two particular classes of hypergraphs called chordal hypergraphs and complete hypergraphs, respectively. READ MORE

  4. 4. On Aspects of Mathematical Reasoning : Affect and Gender

    Author : Lovisa Sumpter; Johan Lithner; Markku Hannula; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : This thesis explores two aspects of mathematical reasoning: affect and gender. I started by looking at the reasoning of upper secondary students when solving tasks. READ MORE

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

    Author : Helena Johansson; Mats Andersson; Jesper Boesen; Morten Blomhøj; Institutionen för matematiska vetenskaper Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL 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
