”It feels like mathematics is fun!” : How students' thoughts and motivation affect mathematics learning (English)
Abstract [en]

This study aims of examining how pupils in first year of school thinks of mathematics, what motivation they have for learning about it and how that affect their learning in mathematics. It also includes describing how special teachers can strengthen student’s mathematical development based on research as well as students’ thoughts and motivation. Qualitative methods were used in this study. Semi structured interviews were done with ten children in year one of school and the analysis of the pupil’s mathematics learning were made by using National Agency for Education's (2018) National Assessment Support in number perception. The study shows that most of the pupils likes mathematics in year one of school and that the pupils in this study overall have more positive thoughts then negative thoughts about mathematics. This study also shows that the pupil’s thoughts and motivations seem to affect the learning in mathematics. It turns out that the more positive thoughts and the higher inner motivation seems to lead to higher mathematic learning. The more negative thoughts and the higher external motivation seems to lead to lower mathematic learning.
