Outdoor pedagogy in the mathematics subject with a focus on earlier years in primary school (English)
Abstract [en]

The Swedish Curriculum (Läroplanen för grundskolan, förskoleklass och fritidshemmet [Lgr22], 2022) emphasizes that skills in mathematics provide people with the conditions to make informed decisions in everyday life and increase the opportunities to participate in decision-making processes in society. At the same time as today's society has a pronounced need for mathematical knowledge, international studies show a deteriorating result among school students and the mathematical interest has declined (Babarovic, 2022). Regarding outdoor education in mathematics, research shows that there are improvement results for the students' learning process. Though students' own attitude towards mathematics has a great impact on their success in the subject (Karalı, 2022), a teacher's commitment and attitude towards the subject is also of great importance for how students feel about it (Carmichael et al., 2017). Among other things, outdoor education in mathematics provides more opportunities to explore and experiment which makes the subject easier to understand and therefore more appreciated and interesting (Khan et. al., 2020). In addition, spending time in nature improves well-being, which contributes to a more positive attitude towards the subject (Pambudi, 2022). In this knowledge overview, it was therefore intended to examine how outdoor education in mathematics, with a focus on the early years in elementary school, affects the students motivation and learning towards the subject.
