Abstract [en]

In my essay I have chosen to examine and compare the attitude among a number of teachers and pupils, towards the use of sketches in mathematics. This research is based on literature studies, investigations and interviews. I have studied literature about history of mathematics, mathematics and art, didactics of mathematics and learning styles. I first investigated the attitude among the mathematics teachers in grade 1-6. All of the 13 teachers, urged the use of sketches in math, but there was a resist among the pupils. They didn’t want the scribble in their workbooks. From a similar investigation done by 70 pupils in grade 3–6, I saw that pupils did actually use sketches in math, in general not so frequently, but always in geometry. During the interview the pupil was told to solve a problem. Those pupils, who drew a sketch when solving the problem, had a greater ability to find the correct answer, than the pupils who didn’t. Therefore I conclude that the use of sketches in mathematics could be an important instrument for teachers to increase the understanding of mathematics for pupils. The pupils though, have not yet discovered the greatness of sketches as a resource in all mathematics.
