Abstract [en]

This paper presents a discussion of some characteristic features about the role and place of mathematics education in vocational education. Based on examples from the Swedish vocational educational system, research studies and curricula, it is concluded that central roles of vocational mathematics education include the connection of informal and formal mathematics as well as facilitation of the use of technology such as artefacts, ICT, and pen and paper. To smoothen the transition from school to workplace the place of vocational mathematics education relates to different learning environments and activities that connect the classroom and workplaces. For creating a starting point for discussions about how vocational mathematics education might be organized analogies are used. They act as tools to visualize and pin point characteristic features that make impact on teaching to prepare individuals for future work and life.
