Abstract [en]

This is a study of how outdoor education in mathematics might affect the enjoyment in learning. In addition, the study examined whether boys and girls are affected equally by the outdoor education. The study was done in a Swedish city school, in two different fourth grades. Through this survey, teachers can gain more insight into how students' motivation and enjoyment in learning mathematics may increase, which in today's society is decreasing. The method used is mainly quantitative questionnaires supplemented by observations. To analyze the results I used three theory’s; the self-determination theory, the socio-cultural perspective and progressive learning. The result shows that the majority of the pupils in grade four think it is positive to have outdoor lessons in mathematics. They also think it’s the same level of difficulty as the regular classes, but that the learning would increase some. The girls were more positive than boys, but the difference between the two classes was more distinct than the differences between the sexes.
