Mathematics for Teaching: A Form of Applied Mathematics
Stylianides, Gabriel J.; Stylianides, Andreas J.
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v26 n2 p161-172 Feb 2010
In this article we elaborate a conceptualisation of "mathematics for teaching" as a form of applied mathematics (using Bass's idea of characterising mathematics education as a form of applied mathematics) and we examine implications of this conceptualisation for the mathematical preparation of teachers. Specifically, we focus on issues of design and implementation of a special kind of mathematics tasks whose use in mathematics teacher education can support the development of knowledge of mathematics for teaching. Also, we discuss broader implications of the article for mathematics teacher education, including implications for mathematics teacher educators' knowledge for promoting mathematics for teaching.
