  1. 1. Mathematics teachers' conceptions about equations

    Detta är en avhandling från Helsinki : University of Helsinki

    Författare :Iiris Attorps; Högskolan i Gävle.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; algebra; conception; equation; learning; mathematics teacher; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Education Subject didactics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Pedagogik Ämnesdidaktik; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this study is to describe and to clarify the mathematics teachers’ subject matter and pedagogical content conceptions about equations. As the basis of these conceptions, the teachers’ experiences of the concept learning of equations from their own school time are described. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The function concept and university mathematics teaching

    Detta är en avhandling från Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Författare :Olov Viirman; Karlstads universitet.; Högskolan i Gävle.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Matematik; Mathematics; mathematics; university education; commognitive framework; function concept; discourse; teaching;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns the teaching of mathematics at university level, with a particular focus on the teaching of the function concept. The main aim of the thesis is describing and analysing the teaching practices of university mathematics teachers regarding the function concept, and how this concept is constituted through these practices.

  3. 3. Approaching Mathematical Discourse Two analytical frameworks and their relation to problem solving interactions

    Detta är en avhandling från Västerås : Mälardalens högskola

    Författare :Andreas Ryve; Mälardalens högskola.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Didactics of Mathematics; Mathematics Education; Analytical approaches; Communication; Concept maps; Contextualization; Discourse; Engineering students; Higher Education; Intentional analysis; Methodological framworks; Problem solving; Prospective teachers; Student teachers; Teacher education; Theoretical frameworks; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; Matematik tillämpad matematik;

    Sammanfattning : The driving force of conducting the two studies presented in this thesis is to examine ways that conceptual understanding and problem solving could be part of mathematics teaching, and through that, part of students' mathematical knowledge. The specific aims of the thesis are: 1) to characterize the classroom discourse of two, apparently similar, problem solving courses in teacher education and 2) to discuss the possibilities of developing two analytical approaches - the communicational approach to cognition and the dialogical approach - used for studying mathematical discourse.
