Similarity is good : A study on how the equal sign is presented in teacher guides, parental guides and by primary school teachers (English)
Abstract [en]

According to several studies, it is important that students learn the correct meaning of the equal sign. If they don’t, they will have a problem when they come to algebra in the future. The purpose of the work is to look at what support teachers get from teacher tutorials and if there is anything that indicates that there is age bound to learn the static view of the equal sign. The focus has been to find out if the teacher tutorials and manuals take up equal character's importance, the static and dynamic vision and through interviews with teachers see how they look on the equal sign meaning and how textbooks shows how they'll teach it.

To respond to my purpose, I've made a textbook analysis where I analysed three teacher tutorials, three handbooks for parents and done interviews with seven teachers from grades 1-3. The results suggest that teacher tutorials give teachers good tip on what she/he should keep in mind when it comes to teaching the meaning of the equal sign. However, manuals for parents are substandard and needs to be updated. The interviews with the teacher`s shows that most of the teachers are familiar with the correct meaning of the equal sign but on this point, there are teachers who need to update themselves on the meaning of the equal sign.
