    Abstract

    Research Seminar Paper. Podcasting is a new phenomenon in Swedish schools. This paper describes a project where the main goal is to analyze if the students’ attitudes towards mathematics are affected if the mathematics is made accessible via podcasts and ipods. Teachers at eleven schools were encouraged to produce podcasts as a part of their mathematics teaching in school-year eight. The results indicate that the possibility to look at mathematics wherever and whenever you want was an important aspect for the students. We also found that the technical difficulties for the teachers were underestimated in the project, and that teachers had difficulties in finding time for the production of podcasts.
