Abstract [en]

Mathematics teaching and mathematics teachers are part of cultural, societal, and educational structures. These structures and different actors within the structures construct mathematics teaching differently and influence the scope of action that teachers hold. To explore the mechanisms behind this influence, Fairclough’s concepts of representations and assumptions were used to analyze common themes in interviews with six Swedish mathematics teachers. Results showed that there is diversity in ways of representing and that three groups of actors are visible in the representations: teachers, official actors, and students and parents. Results also revealed tensions between representations and assumptions that have consequences for teachers’ considerations and decisions about their mathematics teaching.
