Abstract [en]

In this paper we discuss connections between two teaching contents in Swedish upper secondary school programs in vocational education; mathematics and vocational content. Simultaneously, we challenge a dichotomous understanding of theory and practice, while paying an interest in connections between the two. We have adopted the framework of praxeology by Chevallard. Through analysis of empirical examples, we illuminate how, for example, theoretical aspects may derive from both mathematics and vocational content, challenging mathematics as mainly theoretical and vocations as only practical.
