Abstract [sv]

Matematikkurser på Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan läses varje år av flera tusen studenter. Genomströmningen är låg relativt andra kurser och att öka andelen studenter som klarar kurserna utan att minska kraven ligger i både studenters och lärares intresse.I detta arbete undersöker vi vilka plattformar för samarbete inom matematik dagens studenter på medieteknik-programmet, KTH, använder, samt hur de används och hur de olika plattformarna upplevs påverka studenternas inlärning av matematik. Detta är relevant då matematikkurserna anses vara de svåraste på KTH. För att besvara frågeställningen bads 20 studenter svara på en enkät. Svaren som skickades in var främst i fritext.Resultaten visar att studenter använder sig av Facebook, Skype, Mathoverflow och Reddit vid samarbete i matematik. Dessa plattformar används då studenter finner något svårt i matematiken och behöver diskutera lösningar med andra. Plattformar som Youtube, WolframAlpha och Ludu används enligt studenterna själva för ett samarbete inom matematik. Vi anser dock att de nämnda plattformarna ej faller under vår benämning av plattformsbaserat samarbete. En majoritet av studenterna anser att det finns tillräckligt med resurser på KTH för att hjälpa dem med sin inlärning av matematik. Om KTH skulle införa en plattform för att underlätta matematikinlärningen önskar de flesta att det i sådana fall skulle implementeras ett diskussionsforum där studenter och lärare kan hjälpa varandra med lösningar på matematikproblem.

Abstract [en]

Mathematics Courses at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) are each year taken by several thousand students. The throughput is low relative to other courses and to increase the proportion of students who pass the courses without reducing the requirements lies in both the students and teachers interest.In this thesis, we investigate what platforms for cooperation in mathematics today's students at the Media Technology Programme, Royal Institute of Technology, uses, how they are used and how the various platforms are perceived to affect students' ability to learn in mathematics. This is relevant since the courses in mathematics are considered to be the most difficult at KTH. To answer the question we asked 20 students to fill in a survey. The answers were mostly in free-text form.The results show that students uses Facebook,Skype, Mathoverflow and Reddit for cooperation in mathematics. These platforms are used when students find something difficult in the mathematic courses, and want to discuss solutions with other students. Platforms like Youtube, WolframAlpha and Ludu are, according to the students, being used for cooperation in mathematics. However, we believe that these platforms do not fall under our term of platform-based cooperation. A majority of respondents believe that there are enough resources at KTH to help them with their ability to learn mathematics. If KTH would introduce a platform to facilitate learning in mathematics most wish that it would contain a discussion forum where students and teachers could help each other with solutions to mathematical problems
