Understanding in the teaching context : The attitude of a group upper secondary school students about the learning context in mathematics (English)
Abstract [sv]

Mitt syfte med det här arbetet var att undersöka en grupp gymnasieelevers tankar kring sin inlärningssituation i matematik och se under vilka förutsättningar de själva tror att de lär sig bäst. Studien genomfördes med hjälp av 175 enkäter som delades ut på en gymnasieskola i Västergötland. De svarande tillhörde olika program och olika årskurser, och enkäten hade dels frågor med fasta svarsalternativ och dels några ganska öppna frågor. Resultatet kan sammanfattas med bland annat:

- att de flesta elever tror att det är viktigt att öva många gånger på samma sorts uppgifter i matematik; framför allt flickornas svar betonar detta.

- att det finns en svag positiv korrelation mellan använd tid till läxläsning i matematik och betyg i matematik även om kausaliteten är oklar.

- att det finns en stark önskan hos många elever om förståelse av matematikstoffet.

Abstract [en]

My aim in with this work was to examine a group of students at a secondary school and their thoughts about the teaching context in mathematics, and to see under which circumstances they self believe they learn the best. The study was accomplished with the help of 175 questionnaires, which were given to students of an upper secondary school in Västergötland. The respondents represent different categories of studies and different levels, and the questionnaire included both questions with fixed answer alternatives and a few quite open questions. The result of the survey can be summarized with:

- that most students thinks that it is necessary to exercise many times with the same type of assignments in mathematics; above all the girls’ responses emphasized this.

- that there is a slightly positive correlation between time spent on homework in mathematics and the grade in mathematics, even if the way of causality is unclear.

- that there is a strong wish among many students to understand the mathematic topic.
