    Sammanfattning

    The purpose of this paper is to examine preservice teachers’ conceptions of the function concept as well as their conceptions of the significance of functions in mathematics. A further purpose is to study the effects of an intervention regarding the function concept. Two groups of preservice teachers who are specializing in mathematics and science are participating in the study. The findings indicate changes, firstly in the preservice teachers’ view on the function concept related to the intervention, and secondly with respect to different themes of relevance in their reasoning on the significance and presence of functions in various contexts.
