Van Hiele’s theory applied to geometry in Elementary School : A textbook analysis focusing on two-dimensional geometric figures in Swedish curriculum programs for elementary school grades 1–3 (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study has been to analyze how, which, and to what extent two-dimensional geometric figures and tasks are presented in tasks in Swedish textbooks for pupils in elementary school, grades 1–3. The tasks were classified according to the Van Hiele theory, which is a model for how pupils learn geometry by developing knowledge through hierarchical levels 1–5. To reach the aim of the study, a textbook analysis was conducted with 18 textbooks from three different math book series for grades 1–3 in the Swedish elementary school: Matematik Eldorado, Favorit Matematik and Matte Direkt. The results showed that all the textbooks contained two-dimensional geometric figures and tasks that could be classified under one of the Van Hiele levels 1–3. However, the results also revealed big differences in how many, and at what level they were classified. None of the textbook series totally followed Van Hiele’s theory of hierarchical progression. The results from this study can increase the awareness of how Van Hiele’s theory is used in textbooks for Swedish pupils. However, more research is needed to get a clearer picture of how pupils meet Van Hiele’s  geometric levels in the classroom.
