Abstract [en]

This study aims to highlight and analyze eight secondary teachers' views and thoughts on mathematics. Hopefully this study will provide a deeper understanding of how teachers think and reason about their subject and how this affects their teaching. The study was conducted using a qualitative interview method, based on interviews with eight middle school teachers who teach in school mathematics for grades 6 - 9. The interviews were recorded and then transcribed and analyzed. After the interview analysis one can conclude that the teachers’ thoughts concern three main themes: the importance of mathematics, children’s lack of basic knowledge and the teachers’ lack of time.

In discussion and analysis the teachers conceptions of the own subject is being analyzed, and that is the foundation of this study. The conclusion of the study is that the teachers included in study, feel like outsiders from the curriculum which is taking place in schools today. This is leading to irritation between teachers and the curriculum documents, and also between teachers and the school guidance.
