Abstract [sv]

Denna studie undersöker hur elever med fallenhet för matematik motiveras i undervisningen av läraren. Studien undersöker huruvida elevernas upplevelser av arbetet med att motiveras i matematikundervisningen stämmer överens med lärarnas syn på detta. För att uppfylla syftet har semistrukturerade intervjuer utförts där två lärare samt sex elever deltar. Studiens resultat visar att elevernas och lärarnas syn och upplevelser av arbetet med att motivera elever med fallenhet för matematik överensstämmer. Resultatet visar även att begreppet fallenhet för matematik är svårdefinierat och detta bidrog till att olika tolkningar gjordes vilket resulterade i att de intervjuade eleverna i vissa fall i stället var högpresterande elever istället för elever med fallenhet för matematik. Slutsatser som dras av studien är att kombinationen av flexibiliteten i begreppet fallenhet för matematik samt bristen på tid som lärarna har till sitt förfogande leder till att eleverna riskerar att inte få den individanpassade undervisningen som de behöver för att utmanas och motiveras.

Abstract [en]

This study investigates how pupils with talent for mathematics are motivated in the teaching and the teacher's way of working. The study investigates if the pupil’s experiences of motivation in mathematics are in accordance with the teachers view of this. To fulfill the purpose, semi structured interviews have been conducted, where two teachers and six pupils participated. The result of the study show that the pupils and the teachers view and experiences, are consistent. The result also shows that the concept talent for mathematics is difficult and this contributed to different interpretations, which resulted in that the interviewed students in some cases instead was high-performing pupils instead of having a talent for mathematics. The conclusions drawn from the study are that the combination of the flexibility of the concept and the lack of time that the teachers have at their disposal, leads to a risk for pupils to not getting the individualized teaching they need to be challenged and motivated.
