Estetiska lärprocesser och matematikundervisning
2005 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

This exam is based on interviews with teachers in six elementary schools, from grade 1-9. The purpose with this exam was, first of all, to find out what kind of thoughts teachers had about using aesthetics while teaching mathematics. Beyond that I also wanted to find out what the definition aesthetics really stands for and what impact it might have on learning. The research shows a big amount of insecurity about the definition of aesthetics among the teachers. All of them have a positive attitude towards the combination aesthetics and mathematics. But the only thing they are sure about is that some students probably need a different kind of teaching. A smaller amount of the teachers claim that they have been using aesthetics while teaching mathematics, although most of the teachers in this research claim that they haven’t. When it comes to the combination aesthetics and mathematics, you can find literature that speaks positively about it. The only thing lacking to achieve a successful cooperation between these two is knowledge. You can’t yet find any true definitions for the word aesthetics. No more have researchers from all over the world found any proof that aesthetics has any kind of impact on our ability to learn. Some of the researchers though, think that aesthetics can have a positive impact in other ways. They think that there is a possibility that aesthetics can make another subject more appealing for the students. While some others believe that is a frightening scenario. Some of the subject specialists in the aesthetic area are afraid that the aesthetic subjects in themselves might try to find there place in school by acting “help subjects” in other subjects. They are afraid that the aesthetic subjects might lose there own value. Keywords: Aesthetics, Aesthetic, Aesthetic Subjects, Mathematics.
