Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching High School Geometry
Herbst, Patricio; Kosko, Karl
North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education (34th, Kalamazoo, MI, Nov 1-4, 2012)
This paper documents efforts to develop an instrument to measure mathematical knowledge for teaching high school geometry (MKT-G). We report on the process of developing and piloting questions that purported to measure various domains of MKT-G. Scores on the final set of items had no statistical relationship with total years of experience teaching, but all domain scores were found to have statistically significant correlations with years of experience teaching high school geometry. We use this result to propose ways of conceptualizing how instruction-specific considerations might matter in the design of MKT items. [For the complete proceedings, see ED584829.]
