Abstract (Summary)
This study has taken as its startingpoint in our interest for how knowledge that the students can have use for in their everyday life can be intervowen in the everyday work of the school. The society today asks for people with both an ability to cooperate with others and an ability to solve problems. It is also demanded that you take into consideration various choices in many circumstances. The purpose of this study is to investigate how students in third grade cooperate when they solve an everyday problemsolving task, and how their process of solving problem appears. We have conducted an empiric study with a qualitative approach. The students solved an everyday problem in small groups. By help of audio recordings and observations, the cooperation and the students’ process of solving problems has been studied. The results showed not much cooperation between all students, and that the students had reached different levels in the processe of solving problems. The major conclusion drawn of this study was that the cooperation between the students worked in different ways and that the students not yet had reached the level of reflecion and evaluation in the process of solving problems.
