Ferreira, Rosa Tomás; Menezes, Luís; Martinho, Maria Helena
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)
After briefly analysing a classroom episode, we discuss aspects of the teacher's didactical knowledge, namely in its mathematical and instructional dimensions, as reflected in the answers of three prospective teachers to a written assignment based on the episode. We then raise some issues regarding initial teacher education, anchored in the notion of didactical knowledge.
