Mathematics education in a second language : A qualitative study of teachers’ knowledge and strategies (English)
Abstract [en]

The Purpose of this study is to examine teachers´view and strategies regarding mathematics education for second language students.

Method: The Study is conducted using a qualitative approach, in wich data has been obtained trough interviews and observations.

Conclusion: Based on my empirical findings, i conclude that teachers believe they need to find out the reasons behind second langugage students´difficulties in mathematics in order to plan their teaching. By wich this should benefit these students-knowledge development. According to the teachers participating in the study, difficulties in mathematics are due to lacking Swedish language skills and the students´background. By focusing on the langugage during the teaching process and by creating different forms of communications, the circumstances for second language students can be strengthen. This Study indicates that teachers agree that second language students need support in mathematics educstion in order to achieve the learning objectives in rqual terms as the first language students.
