  1. 1. Mathematical Learning Disability : Cognitive Conditions, Development and Predictions

    Författare :Rickard Östergren; Ulf Träff; Joakim Samuelsson; Örjan Dahlström; Åke Olofsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Mathematical learning disability; dyscalculia; mathematical cognition; number sense; Matematiska inlärningssvårigheter; dyskalkyli; matematisk kognition; antalsuppfattning;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of the present thesis was to test and contrast hypotheses about the cognitive conditions that support the development of mathematical learning disability (MLD). Following hypotheses were tested in the thesis: a) domain general deficit, the deficit is primarily located in the domain general systems such as the working memory, b) number sense deficit, the deficit is located in the innate approximate number system (ANS), c) numerosity coding deficit, the deficit is located to a exact number representation system, d) access deficit, the deficit is in the mapping between symbols and the innate number representational system (e.

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

    Författare :Andreas Ryve; Kimmo Eriksson; Inger Wistedt; Anna Sfard; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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.

  3. 3. Kognitiva och metakognitiva perspektiv på läsförståelse inom matematik

    Författare :Magnus Österholm; Björn Textorius; Christer Bergsten; Carl Winsløw; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; mathematical texts; metacognition; reading comprehension; self-regulation; university; upper secondary level; beliefs; cognition; gymnasium; kognition; läsförståelse; matematiska texter; metakognition; självreglering; universitet; uppfattningar; Subject didactics; Ämnesdidaktik;

    Sammanfattning : Det verkar finnas en allmän uppfattning om att matematiska texter är så speciella att man måste få lära sig en särskild typ av läsförmåga för att förstå sådana texter. Denna uppfattning verkar dock inte vara baserad på forskningsresultat eftersom det visar sig inte finnas mycket forskning genomförd som behandlar läsförståelse inom matematik. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Understanding as experiencing a pattern

    Författare :Paulina Lindström; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Understanding; eye-tracking; mathematical problem solving; cognition; pedagogy;

    Sammanfattning : The thesis proposes that understanding is a matter of experiencing a pattern. To experience a pattern involves seeing how a task, principle, or problem space is structured; to attend to the relevant information; and to be able to use that information as it relates to the knowledge domain at hand.

  5. 5. Shedding light on cognitive control

    Författare :Simon Skau; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cognitive Control; fNIRS; mental fatigue; exhaustion disorder; TBI; children; mathematical cognition; proactive cognitive control;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis aimed to investigate the ability to adjust cognitive processes and behavior, i.e., cognitive control, and its related functional activity in the cortex. LÄS MER
