Mathematics Knowledge for Teaching: Evidence from Lesson Study
Chinnappan, Mohan; Cheah, Ui Hock
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) (35th, Singapore, Jul 2-6, 2012)
In this study we take up the issue of teacher knowledge by characterising the quality of one teacher's Mathematics Knowledge for Teaching (Ball, Thames and Phelps, 2008) by examining her Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) that was accessed during a Lesson Study observation in a Chinese primary school. Results show that the participant's PCK was robust in the way she weaved knowledge of content and her students. We explore implications for the development and sharing of this knowledge in the context of her further involvement in our Lesson Study.
