ab: Summary: In the previous papers, the authors describe and discuss, among
other things, a far more complex form of mathematics teaching than
currently exists in most classes in all countries and consequently a
more complex form of mathematics teacher education. As editors of the
Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education we have the opportunity to
read much of the recent research on teaching and teacher education in
mathematics. Thus, I would like, briefly, to discuss where the
mathematics education community is in understanding the complexities in
teaching described previously and forms of teacher education that
support the development of such teaching.
