Computational Estimation in the Primary School: A Single Case Study of One Teacher's Involvement in a Professional Learning Intervention
Mildenhall, Paula; Hackling, Mark; Swan, Paul
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
This paper focuses on the initial analysis of a study of a professional learning intervention. Using a case study design it was possible to describe one teacher's involvement in this research. The study revealed how the teacher's beliefs and pedagogical content knowledge of computational estimation was altered as a result of participating in the research. This development appeared to have an impact on her approaches to the teaching of computational estimation. (Contains 3 tables.)
