Abstract (Summary)
When the current national curricula for the compulsory school system, Lpo 94, was implemented, local interpretations followed. We consider interpretation of curriculum and syllabi as a complicated part of teachers work. The aim of this study is to find out which interpretations elementary school teachers do on goals to aim for, taken from the syllabi of mathematics of the elementary school. Our expectations are that this study will contribute to increased reflections and knowledge concerning formulations of national curricula for the compulsory school system. We choose to perform a qualitative interview study with four teachers of mathematics in the upper school. The teachers, whom contribute to this study, experience of teachers work was varied. The result shows that teachers do various interpretations of the two goals to aim for. The teachers also interprets the concept of goals to aim for differently. The result also shows that the teachers consider the interpretation as difficult. Our conclusion is that these different interpretations can effect the intention of an equivalent school for all.
