Matematik i yrkesprogram – en modell för två ämnens relationer med varandra
Stockholm University, Faculty of Science, Department of Mathematics and Science Education.

Abstract [sv]

I ett aktionsforskningsprojekt undersöktes hur relationer mellan matematik och bygg- och anläggningsämnet i gymnasieskolan kan beskrivas, med specifikt intresse av elevers kommande yrkesaktiviteter som byggnadsarbetare. Vidare undersöktes hur elever på yrkesprogram, lärare (i matematik och bygg- och anläggning) och en forskare beskriver dessa relationer i början och slutet av aktionsforskningsprojektet. Datamaterialet bestod av svar på frågeformulär, bilder, anteckningar och loggböcker. Resultaten visar hur mötespunkten mellan matematik och bygg- och anläggning bör ses som ett eget kunskapsområde som i sig har olika slags relationer till respektive ämne, vilket i artikeln sammanfattas i en generell modell. Resultaten pekar också på hur relationerna handlar om betydligt mer än att se matematik som något som appliceras i en yrkespraktik, utan också om, exempelvis, att matematik i sig kan förklara aspekter i bygg- och anläggningsämnet.

Abstract [en]

In an action research project it was investigated how relationships between mathematics and the educational subject of construction work in upper secondary school maybe described, with a specific interest in the students’ anticipated work in the construction business. Furthermore it was investigated how vocational students, teachers (in mathematics and construction work), and a researcher describe these relationships, in the beginning of the action research project, and at the project’s end. The data consists of answers to written questions in a form, photos and illustrations, notes, and logs. The findings reveal how the interfaces between mathematics and construction work should be viewed as a content area of its own, with relationships to respective subject area, which in the article is summarized in a general model. The findings also point at how the relationships comprise substantially more than viewing mathematics as being applied in a workplace practice, but how also, for example, mathematics in its self may explain aspects of the subject of construction work.
