When they are teaching, mathematics teachers draw on a depth of professional knowledge about mathematics, pedagogy, the curriculum, and their students. Teachers are, however, typically reticent about their knowledge and understanding. Several frameworks have been proposed to examine teachers’ knowledge of teaching building on, for example Shulman’s (1987) notion of pedagogical content knowledge. Unpacking what teachers say and do in classrooms may help to develop approaches to both pre-service and ongoing teacher education that can enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics.
