Title Reading strategies in mathematics : a Swedish example
Author Segerby, Cecilia

English abstract
Recent research shows that the dominant practice in mathematics education in Sweden involves students working individually from a textbook. However, to read mathematical texts involves comprehending the global meaning from the page and this requires specific reading skills. In this study, the reading strategies of six 10-year old students, with different levels of mathematical achievement, are identified. The analysis is based on Palinscar and Brown´s reciprocal activities prediction, clarification and summarization and Halliday´s Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL). In this small study, high achieving students more often described that they used appropriate reading strategies.
