ab: Summary: Factorisation is a fundamental topic in school algebra but also a
challenging topic for teachers to teach and students to learn. This
chapter highlights what an experienced teacher valued in the teaching
of factorisation. A competent Hong Kong teacher, Teacher-HK, was
invited to comment on his lesson by the video-stimulated recall
technique. The analysis was based on the interviews with Teacher-HK
unfolding his strategy for helping his secondary 2 (14+) students learn
about the complexities associated with the learning of factorisation of
linear and quadratic expressions and also the rationalisation for his
actions. Finally, how the example may benefit teacher professional
development is discussed.
