## 1. Problem-solving revisited : On school mathematics as a situated practice

Sammanfattning : The general interest behind the present work is to contribute to an understanding of human cognition in context. More specifically, the empirical research reported focuses on how pupils define and deal with problem-solving in what for them is a regular school situation. LÄS MER

## 2. The problem-solving citizen

Sammanfattning : The present thesis is made up by three articles and in all of these the mathematics curriculum for upper secondary school in Sweden is analysed. The main focus is the citizen and citizenship and the point of departure is problem solving as a competence. LÄS MER

## 3. Engineering problem solving : The case of the Laplace transform as a difficulty in learning in electric circuits and as a tool to solve real world problems

Sammanfattning : For engineers it is important to be able to use the ’skill’ of for example handling novel situations in powerful ways and to develop and design. They are expected to be able to understand theories and models and their connection to objects and events in the physical world and being able to apply these models and theories. LÄS MER

## 4. Explaining everyday problem solving

Sammanfattning : How well can we explain natural occurrences of cognitive behaviours given the theoretical frameworks available to us today? The thesis explores what has to be assumed in cognitive theory in order to provide such an explanation, in contrast to being able to predict behaviour under controlled circumstances. The behaviours considered are all of the type described as involving higher level cognition or being representation hungry. LÄS MER

## 5. Problem solving in mathematics textbooks

Sammanfattning : The aim of this study is to analyse how mathematical problem solving (MPS) is represented in mathematical textbooks for Swedish upper secondary school. The analysis comprises dominating Swedish textbook series, and relates to uncovering a) the quantity of tasks that are actually mathematical problems (MPs), b) their location in the chapter, c) their difficulty level, and d) their context.
