Teaching Multidigit Multiplication: Combining Multiple Frameworks to Analyse a Class Episode
Clivaz, St├ęphane
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v96 n3 p305-325 Nov 2017
This paper provides an analysis of a teaching episode of the multidigit algorithm for multiplication, with a focus on the influence of the teacher's mathematical knowledge on their teaching. The theoretical framework uses Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching, mathematical pertinence of the teacher and structuration of the milieu in a descending and ascending a priori analysis and an a posteriori analysis. This analysis shows a development of different didactical situations and some links between mathematical knowledge and pertinence. In the conclusion, the contribution of the frameworks from both French and Anglo-American origins is briefly addressed.
