  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. High achiever! Always a high achiever? A comparison of student achievements on mathematical tests with different aims and goals

    Detta är en avhandling från Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Författare :Elisabet Mellroth; Karlstads universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; achievement; alternative assessment; curriculum based assessment mathematical competency; mathematical kangaroo; mathematics tests; national tests; Matematik; Mathematics;

    Sammanfattning : This study explored changes in relative achievement over time. It also investigated differences in how two groups of students activate mathematical competencies. LÄS MER

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. 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
