  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. On Mathematical Reasoning being told or finding out

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Mathias Norqvist; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; mathematics education; creative reasoning; reasoning; cognitive proficiency; fMRI; didactics of mathematics; matematikdidaktik;

    Sammanfattning : School-mathematics has been shown to mainly comprise rote-learning of procedures where the considerations of intrinsic mathematical properties are scarce. At the same time theories and syllabi emphasize competencies like problem solving and reasoning. LÄS MER

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Assessing mathematical creativity comparing national and teacher-made tests, explaining differences and examining impact

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Matematik och matematisk statistik, Umeå universitet

    Författare :Jesper Boesen; Umeå universitet.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; Mathematical reasoning; creative reasoning; moderate high stake; teacher made tests; imitative reasoning; assessment; impact; influence; effect; mathematical competence; national tests;

    Sammanfattning : Students’ use of superficial reasoning seems to be a main reason for learning difficulties in mathematics. It is therefore important to investigate the reasons for this use and the components that may affect students’ mathematical reasoning development. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Exercising Mathematical Competence: Practising Representation Theory and Representing Mathematical Practice

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Matematik och matematisk statistik, Umeå universitet

    Författare :Anna Ida Säfström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical competence; exercising competencies; young children; whole number arithmetic; tertiary level; proving; highest weight representation; tensor product decomposition; skew-symmetric matrix; moment map; infinite dimensional unitary representation;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis assembles two papers in mathematics and two papers in mathematics education. In the mathematics part, representation theory is practised. Two Clebsch-Gordan type problems are addressed. LÄS MER
