Abstract

In this paper, we document some developments in teacher education practice at one university, brought about by reflection on research into mathematics teacher knowledge. The authors are three members of the Cambridge-based research team who developed the Knowledge Quartet (KQ), a theory of mathematics teacher knowledge, with a focus on classroom situations in which this knowledge is applied. At the same time as being researchers, the authors were elementary mathematics teacher education instructors. They found that the KQ research brought about new awareness of the importance of some components of mathematics didactics, as well as providing new tools for undertaking some aspects of their teacher educator role. The paper explores some of these awarenesses and tools in detail.
