Abstract [en]

This thesis is a collaboration with Framtidens läromedel, which is a research and product development project at Mälardalen University. Studies show that the mathematics skills of Swedish students are declining. The project aims to create a teaching material based on research that can help change the trend.

 

The project is developing several different parts. A book for students, a teacher's guide and a PowerPoint to use in the classroom. My task is to design the PowerPoint which aim to include interesting illustrations.

 

Research shows that students understand the content of a text better if they can look at a descriptive image. The “image” can be a movie, a picture in a book or a sketch drawn by the teacher on the board to help the students to understand.

 

The conclusion of this study is that a design should be attractive and that an image should be easy to read and to understand. This makes the recipients interested to the message being conveyed.

 

Studies show that in mathematics and mainly geometry, children relate geometric shapes to familiar objects. I have considered this in the creation of a descriptive image showing geometric shapes placed in an everyday context.
