Giftedness and mathematics – How does it show? : What do educators perceive as traits of giftedness and how does it show? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studien syftar till att undersöka vilka kännetecken pedagoger uppfattar att de särskilt begåvade eleverna uppvisar och hur de kommer till uttryck i matematikundervisningen. Detta görs med förhoppningen att fler pedagoger ska kunna uppmärksamma sina särskilt begåvade elever. Studien bygger på semistrukturerade intervjuer med fem pedagoger samt två observationer av särskilt begåvade elever. Resultatet visar dels att pedagoger uppfattar vissa kännetecken som tecken på särskild begåvning trots att kännetecknen inte har koppling till särskild begåvning. Resultatet visar också att de särskilt begåvade eleverna utnyttjar sina mer välutvecklade förmågor på olika sätt beroende på om de har intresse för ämnet och känner sig motiverade. Studiens implikation på yrkesutövandet blir att det behövs mer kunskap hos pedagoger om hur kännetecknen kan komma till uttryck för att säkerställa att fler av de oidentifierade eleverna uppmärksammas.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study is to examine what traits educators perceive that the gifted students exhibit and how it shows in mathematics teaching. This is done with hope that more educators will be able to notice their gifted students. The study is based on semi structured interviews with five educators as well as two observations of gifted students. The result shows that some of the traits that educators perceive as signs of giftedness aren’t connected to giftedness. The result also shows that the gifted students utilize their above-average abilities in different ways based on interest for the subject and feelings of motivation. The study implicates that educators need more knowledge about how the traits can be expressed to make sure that more of the unidentified gifted students come to educators’ attention.
