Secondary Pre-Service Teachers' Algebraic Reasoning about Linear Equation Solving
Alvey, Christina; Hudson, Rick A.; Newton, Jill; Males, Lorraine M.
Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, v1 Sep 2016
This study analyzes the responses of 12 secondary pre-service teachers on two tasks focused on reasoning when solving linear equations. By documenting the choices PSTs made while engaging in these tasks, we gain insight into how new teachers work mathematically, reason algebraically, communicate their thinking, and make pedagogical decisions. We will share qualitative results from our examination of teacher knowledge through pre-service teachers' explanations, models, language, and conjectures about student thinking.
