Abstract [en]

Problem solving can involve using mathematics to solve everyday problems. In this study we examine an interaction between a teacher and a class of six-year olds in Sweden around an open-ended problem set in an everyday context. Using Bernstein’s ideas about vertical and horizontal discourse, a mixture of everyday and mathematicsunderstandings is identified in the interaction. This mixture seems to result in confusion for both the teacher and the children over what should be the focus. This paper raises issues about how the connection to the everyday in problem solving could reduce children’s opportunities to learn mathematics
