Abstract [sv]

Sommarskolan används för att uppnå godkänt betyg för de elever som ej har uppnått godkänt betyg under den ordinarie skolan. Det finns statistik på hur många som går på sommarskola, och hur många som klarar av att uppnå godkänt betyg, men det finns väldigt lite forskning om vad det är för undervisning och lärande som sker på sommarskolan. Syftet med detta examensarbete är att få bättre kunskap om matematikundervisningen på sommarskolan, vilket lärande som möjliggörs där och elevers uppfattningar om sitt lärande. En kvalitativ studie av matematikundervisningen på en sommarskola i Sverige har utförts, där data består av intervjuer, observationer och en skriftlig utvärdering. Tematisk analys har använts för att hitta mönster inom studiens data. Analysresultatet pekar på att elevernas arbetsinsats är mycket bättre på sommarskolan jämfört med den ordinarie skolan och uppfattas av eleverna själva som mycket bättre på grund av högre motivation och bättre studiemiljö. Den högre motivationen kan relateras till att eleverna har en kort och tydlig målsättning.

Abstract [en]

Summer schools in Sweden are used to achieve a pass grade for those students who have not achieved a pass grade during the regular school. There are statistics on how many people go to summer school, and how many people achieve pass grades, but there is very little research on what kind of teaching and learning takes place at summer schools. The purpose of this thesis is to gain better knowledge of mathematics teaching at summer schools, what learning is made possible there and students' perceptions of their learning. A qualitative study of mathematics teaching at a summer school in Sweden has been performed, where the data consists of interviews, observations and a written evaluation. Thematic analysis has been used to find patterns within the study data. The analysis results indicate that the students' work effort is much better at summer school compared to the regular school and is also perceived by the students themselves as much better because of higher motivation and a better study environment. This higher motivation can be related to the students having a short and clear objective.
