Matematikmöjligheter: En studie i en Sydafrikansk skola

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this report is to find out how we can work with learners on the basis of their opportunities in mathematics. I also want to look into, how one views this question in other cultures that are different from our own. I have, in order to reach my purpose, looked on what literature there is on this matter. I have also made three interviews in a township in South Africa. The result I got from my survey was that the teachers I interviewed had a similar point of view on the teaching of mathematic as we have in Sweden. Finally I can establish that we as educators should begin to work with mathematics from a possibility perspective where we give the learners a menu of methods that they can examine and along with us find their own way to develop their skills in mathematics. I think that if we work like this we can get learners with a strong self-esteem, with knowledge about their unique conditions and that can take them as far as they want.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna rapport blir att ta reda på hur man kan arbeta med elever utifrån deras möjligheter i matematik. Jag vill även studera hur man ser på denna fråga i andra kulturer som skiljer sig från vår egen. För att nå mitt syfte, har jag dels sökt ta reda på vad det finns för litteratur i ämnet, och dels gjort intervjuer med tre lärare i en kåkstad i Sydafrika.

Det resultat jag fick fram utav undersökningen var att de lärare jag intervjuade hade en liknande syn på matematikinlärningen som vi i Sverige.

Slutligen kan jag konstatera utifrån mitt resultat, att vi pedagoger bör börja arbeta med matematiken ur ett möjlighetsperspektiv. Där vi ger eleverna ett smörgåsbord av metoder som de får undersöka och tillsammans med oss hitta sitt eget sätt att utvecklas inom matematiken. På detta sätt tror jag vi får elever med en stark självkänsla och med vetskap om sina unika förutsättningar, som kan ta dem vart de vill.
