Abstract [en]

The Sámi schools in Sweden follow the national regulations but are profiled after Sámi needs which safeguards and develops the Sámi culture and language. Sámi pupils have to be confident in the Sámi cultural inheritance and they have to be able to speak, read and write Sámi. In accordance with the Sámi schools ordinance there is a need for an education that is aware of and have a base in the Sámi culture. My intention with my research is to describe and try to understand the mathematics from a Sámi point of view. The focus is on the traditional Sámi knowledge and learning. My research questions are following: What is mathematics from a Sámi perspective? Is it possible to connect the education in mathematics in the Sámi schools with the Sámi culture? Is it possible to use the culture as a base for the learning in mathematics? Is it possible to develop a view of teachings in mathematics which act from the Sámi culture?
