Teaching materials in mathematics teaching : Which teaching materials are used and what factors influence the choice? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Skolverkets rapport (2003) Lusten att lära visar att läroboken är det läromedel som dominerar den svenska undervisningen i matematik och att den största delen av undervisningen sker genom enskilt arbete i boken. Rapporten visar även att elevernas intresse för ämnet sjunker ju högre upp i åldrarna eleverna kommer. I läroplanen för ämnet matematik står det beskrivet att ämnet ska arbeta för att öka elevernas intresse för matematik samt att eleverna ska få testa på olika arbetssätt (Skolverket 2016).

Det övergripande syftet med uppsatsen är att studera vilka läromedel lärare i årskurs 7–9 i den svenska skolan använder sig av i sin undervisning. Uppsatsen syftar även till att undersöka vilka faktorer som påverkar lärarnas val när det kommer till användandet av olika läromedel. Hur lärarna skulle vilja att deras undervisning skulle se ut undersöks också.

Studien genomfördes genom en enkätundersökning som skickades ut till medlemmarna i Facebookgruppen Matematikundervisning samt till 159 rektorer utspridda i Sverige. 131 enkäter samlades in och analyserades. Enkätsvaren indikerade på att läroboken fortfarande är det läromedlet som dominerar undervisningen i matematik. Dessutom framkom det att de flesta lärarna skulle vilja att deras undervisning skulle vara mer variationsrik och mindre bunden till läroboken samt att de skulle vilja använda sig mer av problemlösningsuppgifter och gruppövningar. Dock upplever de att tid, pengar och tillgången till material sätter stopp.

Abstract [en]

The Swedish National Agency for Education’s report (Skolverket 2003) Lusten att lära (in English = The will to learn) are showing that the textbook is the most frequently used teaching material in Swedish teaching in the subject of mathematics. Most of the teaching takes place through individual work with the textbook. The report is also showing that the students’ interest for the teaching reduces when the students get older. The Swedish curriculum for mathematics describes that the subject is meant to increase students’ interests for mathematics and that the students’ abilities shall be tested in different ways (Skolverket 2016).

The overall purpose of this paper is to study which teaching materials teachers in grade 7-9 in  the Swedish school are using in their teaching of mathematics. The paper also aims to investigate what factors that influence teachers’ choice of using different teaching materials. The last thing that this paper investigate are how the teachers would like their teaching to look like.

The study was conducted through a survey, distributed to members of the Facebook group Matematikundervisning and to 159 rectors spread in Sweden. 131 surveys were collected and analyzed. The survey responses indicated that the textbook is still dominating mathematics teaching in lower secondary school. It also emerged that most teacher would like their teaching to be more varied and less bound to the textbook. The teacher would also use more problem-solving tasks and group exercises in their teaching. However, they pointed out that time, money and access to material are things that stopping them from creating an education they are pleased and happy with.
