Lärobokens roll i matematikundervisningen. : Allmändidaktisk tillämpning av van Hieles teorier vid introduktion av algebra.

by Thornér, Kristina

Abstract (Summary)
This paper is a text analysis of how some Swedish textbooks in mathematics introduce algebra filtered by van Hiele theories of levels of thinking. The van Hiele theories emphasize that the language constitutes the knowledge objects in mathematics, wich is used all through the analysis. Generally the textbooks start at the third van Hiele’s level of thinking. According to the van Hiele theories the teaching of algebra should start at level 1. This then becomes the teachers’ task to do without the support of the textbook in mathematics. Ideas on teaching level 1 and 2 are included.
