Abstract: My former studies clarifi ed that Finnish education, which has maintained the world’s highest level as shown in an international academic assessment, helps children learn through various kinds of social relations. This study was conducted to examine how a Finnish textbook supports children’s learning. I analyzed the non-mathematical words that appear in the “number and calculation” unit of a seventh grade Finnish mathematics textbook, and determined what kinds of mathematical contexts the words are used in. I found that the Finnish mathematics textbook contained a great many more non-mathematical words than Japanese ones and helps children learn through the social relations that are given by the words. In the future, I will analyze more textbooks and develop some Japanese mathematical materials to support children’s learning through social relations.
