  1. 1. On axioms and images in the history of Mathematics

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Department of Mathematics, Uppsala University

    Författare :Johanna Pejlare; Uppsala universitet.; Högskolan i Borås.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; Mathematics; History of mathematics; axiomatization; intuition; visualization; images; Euclidean geometry; history of mathematics; euclidean geometry; matematikhistoria;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation deals with aspects of axiomatization, intuition and visualization in the history of mathematics. Particular focus is put on the end of the 19th century, before David Hilbert's (1862–1943) work on the axiomatization of Euclidean geometry. The thesis consists of three papers. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Mathematical Reasoning : In physics and real-life context

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Helena Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Creative mathematical reasoning; Descriptive statistics; Differential item functioning; Figurative context; Imitative reasoning; Mathematical Reasoning Requirements; Mathematics tasks; National tests; Physics tasks; Real-life context; T-test; Upper secondary school;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is a compilation of four papers in which mathematical reasoning is examined in various contexts, in which mathematics is an integral part. It is known from previous studies that a focus on rote learning and procedural mathematical reasoning hamper students’ learning of mathematics. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Difficult to read or difficult to solve? The role of natural language and other semiotic resources in mathematics tasks

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Anneli Dyrvold; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; didactics of mathematics; matematikdidaktik; mathematics education; multisemiotics; task text; difficulty; mathematical reading ability; Mathematics; Matematik; Pedagogik; Education; Linguistics; Lingvistik; word; image; symbol; mathematical notation; cohesion;

    Sammanfattning : When students solve mathematics tasks, the tasks are commonly given as written text, usually consisting of natural language, mathematical notation and different types of images. This is one reason why reading and interpreting such texts are important parts of being mathematically proficient, at least within the school context. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mathematical Reasoning in Physics Tests - Requirements, Relations, Dependence

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Helena Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical reasoning; imitative reasoning; creative mathematical reasoning; physics tests; physics tasks; upper secondary school; Mantel-Haenszel procedure.; Mantel-Haenszel procedure;

    Sammanfattning : By analysing and expanding upon mathematical reasoning requirements in physics tests, this licentiate thesis aims to contribute to the research studying how students’ knowledge in mathematics influence their learning of physics. A sample of physics tests from the Swedish National Test Bank in Physics was used as data, together with information of upper secondary students’ scores and grades on the tests. LÄS MER

  5. 5. To explore and verify in mathematics

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik, Umeå universitet

    Författare :Tomas Bergqvist; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2001]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Explorations; mathematical reasoning; empirical investigations; graphing calculators; conjectures.; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Education Subject didactics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Pedagogik Ämnesdidaktik; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; didactics of mathematics; matematikdidaktik;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation consists of four articles and a summary. The main focus of the studies is students' explorations in upper secondary school mathematics. In the first study the central research question was to find out if the students could learn something difficult by using the graphing calculator. LÄS MER
