Mathematical competences in Swedish steering documents
2009 (English)In: In search for theories in mathematics education: proceedings of the 33rd conference of the International group for the psychology of mathematics education / [ed] Marianna Tzekaki, Maria Kaldrimidou, Haralambos Sakonidis, Thessaloniki, Greece: PME , 2009, 1:336- p.Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
This study is an ongoing project where we only have very preliminary results, and the main aim of this paper is not to present results, but to discuss the methodological issues when using content analysis on the course syllabus for the Swedish compulsory school. Content analysis (Krippendorff, 2004) is in most cases in the literature used on large materials, for example all news articles from a specific year that concern a certain political issue. We will discuss what happens when we try to use the method on a comparatively small document of a very different kind.
