Mathematics for all, or is someone left on their own? : A qualitative study of teachers' working methods for lifting and challenging students who are mathematically talented (English)
Abstract [sv]

Elever med särskild matematisk begåvning är i lika stort behov av att bli utmanade, hjälpta och sedda som alla andra elever. Dessa elever hamnar ibland i situationer då de behöver klara sig själva för att det finns andra elever som är i ”större” behov av lärarens uppmärksamhet. Syftet med denna studie är att få ökad kunskap om hur matematiklärare i årskurs 4–6 arbetar, utmanar och uppmärksammar elever med särskild matematisk begåvning. Metoden som använts är semistrukturerade intervjuer för att intervjua fyra aktivt undervisande matematiklärare i årskurs 4–6.  I samtliga intervjuer framkom teman som indikerade att kunskapen om dessa elevers behov av uppmärksamhet är hög men resurserna att ge dem det de behöver är bristfälliga vilket resulterar i att de ofta får klara sig själva.

Abstract [en]

Pupils with special mathematical talent are in the same need of being challenged, helped and seen as all other pupils. These students sometimes end up in situations where they need to cope themselves with parts of their learning, because there are other students who are in "greater" need of the teacher's attention. The purpose of this study is to gain a greater understanding of how teachers currently teaching mathematically talented students in grades 4-6, work with these students, the challenges the teachers face and how the teachers’ pay attention to pupils. The method used is semi-structured interviews for interviewing four teachers currently teaching mathematically talented students in grades 4–6. In all interviews the  emerging themes indicated that the knowledge of these pupils' need for attention is high, but the resources to give them what they need are inadequate, which results in them often having to cope with their own learning on their own.
