Establishing Mathematics for Teaching within Classroom Interactions in Teacher Education
Ryve, Andreas; Nilsson, Per; Mason, John
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v81 n1 p1-14 Sep 2012
Teacher educators' processes of establishing "mathematics for teaching" in teacher education programs have been recognized as an important area for further research. In this study, we examine how two teacher educators establish and make explicit features of mathematics for teaching within classroom interactions. The study shows how the establishment of mathematics for teaching is dependent on the use of keywords from the mathematics education domain, the introduction of variation, and the use of generic communicative strategies. As such, the study could be seen as a contribution to ongoing research on how mathematics teacher educators interactively deal with mathematics for teaching.
