Title Teachers' interpretation of mathematics goals in Swedish preschools
Author(s) Delacour, Laurence
Date 2014
English abstract
The purpose of this paper is to investigate how preschool teachers interpret the revised mathematics goals in the Swedish preschool curriculum. I analyze how some preschool teachers transform, clarify, and concretize those mathematical goals, with a focus on didactic questions related to content: What is preschool mathematics according to the teacher? How can mathematics be communicated? And why is mathematics communicated? I place the study within a curriculum didactic perspective. The key concept is Linde’s (2006) classification of teachers’ ways of approaching a subject. Most of the text is adapted from my thesis (Delacour, 2013).
