Abstract [en]

The purpose of our exam work was to see how mathematical problem solving in groups can develop pupils learning when it comes to co-operation, listening and explaining. We also want to see if their solving strategies and attitudes to mathematical problem solving in groups changes. We did our investigation in Perth, Australia for seven weeks. The pupils were 10-11 years old. We started the investigation with a questionnaire and also ended it with the same questionnaire. During the seven weeks the pupils have been working with mathematical problem solving and we have observed them every time they were working. The result from the observations and the questionnaire showed that the pupils have improved their co-operation. They are much better in listening and explaining to each other and their attitudes towards mathematical problem solving in groups are more positive. The pupils have improved their solving strategies, but it is too short time to make any definite conclusions.
