ab: From the text: This special issue on the mathematical content knowledge of
prospective elementary teachers (PTs) provides summaries of the extant
peer-reviewed research literature from 1978 to 2012 on PTsâ€™ content
knowledge across several mathematical topics, specifically whole number
and operations, fractions, decimals, geometry and measurement, and
algebra. Each topic-specific summary of the literature is presented in
a self-contained paper, written by a subgroup of a larger working group
that has collaborated across several years, resulting in this special
issue sharing the final work. The authors hope this summative look at
prospective teacher content knowledge will be of interest to the
mathematics education community and will be a useful resource when
considering future research as well as designing mathematics content
courses for prospective elementary teachers. The following sections in
this issue provide background information on our overarching framework
for the mathematical content knowledge of prospective elementary
teachers as well as our rationale for conducting the summary of
research. We briefly describe the intent and history of the working
group that conducted the summaries, followed by the methods utilized in
the summary process. Finally, we provide a description of what follows
in each subsequent paper and close with our intentions of how this
special issue might be used by our readers.
