“It is so integrated in my way of thinking” : the reasoning of work teams from five preschool departments’ about the role of mathematic in preschool (English)
Abstract [en]

The background to the study was that the school agency published a report stating that students, after completing school, did not meet the criteria to receive the grade “Pass” in mathematics. The study presents the reasoning of work teams from five different preschool departments’, about ways to work with the subject with children in the ages four to five. The study may help future teachers to develop new attitudes regarding mathematics in the preschool, by letting them take part of others pedagogues’ thoughts and experiences. We chose to first observe five preschools and then interview the five preschool departments’ work team. Some work teams believe that mathematics should not be dealt with as a theme in pre-school, but should rather belong to compulsory school, they consider mathematics as a subject that is always present anyway, as it creeps into other activities. Science, play, music and languages are examples of various subjects that mathematics is integrated in. The result shows that although the priority of mathematics in the preschool varies, the main focus is always language. What is considered as mathematics in the preschool is described as different types of problem solution; Room perception, Number sense, Categorization or Statistics are included. In the discussion, the work teams mainly focus on the use of everyday mathematics.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrunden till studien var att Skolverket kom ut med en rapport om att elever efter avslutad skolgång inte klarar de kriterier som gäller för betyget godkänt i matematik. Studien syftar till att få fram fem förskoleavdelningars arbetslags resonemang om olika sätt att förhålla sig till att arbeta med barn i tre till femårs ålder i matematik. Studien kanske kommer att hjälpa nyutbildade lärare att utveckla nya förhållningssätt när det gäller matematik i förskolan genom att ta del av andra pedagogers tankar och erfarenheter. Vi valde att först observera fem förskolor och sedan intervjua de fem avdelningarnas arbetslag. Matematik i förskolan ska inte vara ett tema utan det hör till skolan anser en del arbetslag, de ser mer matematiken som ett ämne som finns ändå ”Det smyger sig in”. Naturkunskap, lek, musik och språk är olika ämnen som matematiken integreras i. Resultatet visar att även om prioriteringen av matematiken i förskolan varierar fokuseras alltid språket. Vad som är matematik i förskolan beskrivs som olika former av problemlösning där antingen rumsuppfattning, antalsuppfattning, kategorisering och statistik ingår. I diskussionen lyfts främst hur arbetslagen resonerar om användningen av matematiken i vardagen.
