ab: Summary: This paper discusses the participation of one grade 8 student in a
typical Swedish mathematics class as she tried to learn independently
about linear relationships, mainly through the mathematics textbook.
Since this set-up has the possibility for every student to progress at
different rates, only one student, through data from ten consecutive
lessons, was considered. Results from an analysis of this student’s
use of the textbook showed that the textbook is used independently more
as an instrument for learning mathematics rather than an object of
learning mathematics. However, further studies are required to
determine the extent of learning and the development of mathematical
skills.
