Abstract [en]

This study is about a pupil-activating way of method in mathematics in the early school years. The group in the study consists of one teacher and two pupils from a second grade age group. You can read in this study about an interview with the teacher and an observation with each pupil. The teacher use the method named Creative mathematics. My choice of subject is based on a course I took at Karlstad University named Creative mathematics. I wanted to study if it´s possible to fully or partly work without the mathematic-textbook in real life. Two questions are answered in the study: Does Creative mathematics mean that the teacher specifically works in participation with the pupils? How does the teacher describe her understanding of creative mathematics? My conclusions in the study: Creative mathematics mean to see the reality behind the figures and also to be active in the classroom and not only sitting with the nose in the textbook. To practice Creative mathematics the teacher has to specifically work with the participation of the pupils and to activate them during the lessons as the pupils have to be part and active in their own educational process for progress. This way of work demands a lot of the teacher and of the pupils. As it is described in this study the way of work maybe never be completed because the teacher develops new ideas henceforth. The question remains if it ever should be completed, because as a teacher you grow all the time. The study shows that Creative mathematics is a successful concept because you can combine the way of work with the textbook, if you as a teacher want to. Everything is up to the teacher and the way of work she prefers.
