What Teachers Need to Know to Teach Mathematics: An Argument for a Reconceptualised Model
Hurrell, Derek P.
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v38 n11 Article 4 Nov 2013
Since Shulman's (1986) seminal work on Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) was released, it has created opportunities for the creation of constructs to scaffold the knowledge and understandings that teachers need in order to be effective. Adapting this work from being a heuristic to an operational structure has seen the development of many models. One such model regarding Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching (MKT) (Hill et al., 2008) has enjoyed a good deal of attention. This paper aims to argue for a reconceptualisation of Hill et al.'s (2008) model to make it as informative as possible for teachers and teaching. (Contains 4 figures and 1 table.)
