Developing Teacher Understanding of Early Algebraic Concepts Using Lesson Study
Hunter, Jodie
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)
This paper reports on the use of lesson study as a professional development tool. In particular the paper focuses on the way in which the teachers increased their understanding of how tasks, classroom activity and teacher actions scaffolded student learning of early algebraic reasoning of equivalence and the commutative principle. Teacher voice is used to illustrate how lesson study cycles caused the teachers to reflect and review their own understandings of early algebraic concepts and how their students considered the concepts.
