Students who are especially gifted in mathematics : Teacher´s description of especially gifted students and how they design a motivating and challenging mathematics teaching in the early years of primary school (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur lärare i grundskolans tidigare år, (F-3) upplever elever som är särskilt begåvade inom matematik samt hur de utformar en matematikundervisning som stimulerar dessa elever till fortsatt lärande. I min undersökning har jag använt mig av kvalitativa e-mailintervjuer. Lärarna som deltagit i intervjuerna arbetar inom grundskolans tidigare år, har minst fem års erfarenhet inom yrket och är behöriga att undervisa i matematik.

 

I resultatet framkommer det att lärarna beskriver att särskilt begåvade elever har lätt för sig och behöver nya utmaningar för att inte bli uttråkade. Resultatet av min studie visar också att det finns en variation i hur lärare utformar sin matematikundervisning. Utifrån intervjuerna framkommer det att lärarna använder sig av tre olika individualiseringsformer, hastighetsindividualisering, materialindividualisering och nivåindividualisering.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study is to examine how teachers in primary school experiencing students who are especially gifted in mathematics, as well as how they design a mathematics teaching that stimulate these students to continued learning.

In my research, I have used qualitative e-mail interviews. The teachers who participated in these interviews work in the primary school, have at least five years of experience in teaching and competence in teaching mathematics.

 

The result of my study shows that teachers describe that especially gifted students think that mathematics is a little too easy and need new challenges to not be bored.

The results of my study also shows a variation in the way teachers design their mathematics teaching. The interviews shows that teachers are using three different individualization forms, speed individualization, material individualization and level individualization.
