Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to compare different ways to teach mathematics in the school's lower age groups, and to examine whether certain practices increase students' desire and motivation to learn the subject. The questions used to determine the purpose is the following:

  • What vision has the students in the class at maths?
  • How does the teaching of mathematics in the class look like?
  • What vision has the students in the class at working with different approaches in education?
  • Does the traditional approach  and the options that I am examining meet the steering documents requirements?

 The essay is organized as a qualitative study. The study was conducted in an elementary school in Sweden, third grade. The methods used included interviews with students and observations in the classroom. I have also completed three lessons in which I introduced students to three different approaches. Mathematics lessons that this third grade has, begins and ends with the students work individually with the math book. Is it possible to increase students' desire to mathematics by introducing different approaches? For example if the mathematic lesson is based on a mathematics contest, in which students work in groups to discuss and argue for solving various problems. When using different methods in mathematics does the students have the chance to find their way of learning, where the different approaches gives students the chance to examine the mathematics with different senses. All are individuals, and therefore have different ways to learn.
