Abstract [en]

Since the textbook has a prominent role in Swedish mathematics education it is of importance that textbooks has a focus on everyday life application that matches the requirements of the syllabuses and provide examples of practical usage of mathematics. The purpose of this qualitative case study of four randomly chosen textbooks in mathematics for the ninth grade, published during the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, from which a stratified random sample of word problems has been drawn, is to study the prevalence of word problems related to everyday life as well as to see how much of the everyday life related instructions in the syllabuses these textbooks implement. The result shows that the proportion of exercises that is made up from word problems has increased steadily from the 1960s to the 1990s in the textbooks that were analysed and at the same time has the proportion of exercises related to everyday life among the word problems decreased. The overarching impression regarding instructions related to everyday life in the syllabuses is that rather few of them have been implemented via word problems.

Abstract [sv]

Då läroboken har en dominerande roll i den svenska matematikundervisningen är det av vikt att dessa böcker har ett fokus på vardagslivskopplingen som motsvarar budskapet i kursplanerna samt ger eleverna exempel på matematikens vardagliga tillämpningsområden. Syftet med denna kvalitativa fallstudie av fyra slumpmässigt valda läroböcker i matematik för årskurs 9, utgivna under 60-, 70-, 80- och 90-talet, ur vilka ett stratifierat slumpmässigt urval av textuppgifter dragits, är att studera förekomsten av vardagsrelaterade textuppgifter samt hur läroböckerna uppfyller anvisningarna i kursplanerna rörande den vardagslivsrelaterade kopplingen. Resultatet visar att andelen uppgifter som utgörs av textuppgifter har ökat stadigt från 60- till 90-talet i de studerade läroböckerna samtidigt som de vardagsrelaterade uppgifternas andel av textuppgifterna har minskat. Beträffande kursplanernas anvisningar är det övergripande intrycket att tämligen lite har implementerats via textuppgifterna.
