Math is fun! A survey of attitudes toward animation as teaching aid in mathematics (English)
Abstract [sv]

Enligt internationella mätningar framgår det att svenska studenter uppvisat ett sämre resultat i matematik än många andra av världens länder. Samtidigt som det kunnat konstateras att elevernas allmänna intresse för ämnet försvagats har sökandet efter alternativa metoder i ämnets undervisning blivit allt viktigare för att kunna få bukt på problemen. I denna studie undersöks hur gymnasielevers samt ämneslärarens attityd ser ut till användandet av multimediala animationer som läromedel i matematikundervisningen. Vidare utreds även hur animationer som läromedel kan utformas för att kunna bidra till en ökad inlärning. I studien har en enkätundersökning, en intervju samt en observation genomförts i syfte att mäta attityderna till mediet. En litteraturinsamling har även implementerats för att kunna identifiera relevanta teorier som sedan applicerats i skapandet av den animation som förekommer i undersökningen. Resultatet från undersökningen visade på att både elevernas samt ämneslärarens attityd var positiv vad gäller användandet av animationer som läromedel inom ämnet matematik. Genom litteraturinsamlingen kunde ett antal pedagogiska tekniker och teorier identifieras vilka tillämpades på den animation som förekom i studien.

Abstract [en]

According to international measures, it is clear that the Swedish students have lagged behind concerning their results in mathematics compared to numerous other countries in the world. As it is noticed that learners general interest in the subject is weakened, the search for alternative methods of teaching mathematics has become increasingly important in order to turn this development around. This study examines how Swedish high school students and a teacher's attitudes look like in terms of multimedia animation and its learning potential. Furthermore, the study also addresses how animations can be designed for the purpose of improved learning. In the study, a questionnaire, an interview and an observation were conducted in order to measure attitudes towards the selected media. Numerous theories have also been collected and then applied to the creation of an animation. Results from the study concluded that both the high school students and the teacher's attitudes were positive regarding the use of animations in the teaching of mathematics. Regarding the literature that was collected, numerous pedagogical techniques and theories were identified and applied to the animation that was included in the study.
