ab: A study was carried out involving thirty-one K-8 teacher candidates
enrolled in an elementary mathematics methods course to investigate and
document their thinking as they plan for mathematics instruction. The
teacher candidates submitted lesson plans at three intervals during a
semester-long methods course which were coded based on the planned uses
of mathematical representations. Analysis of the data revealed trends
in the choices of representations. Recommendations are presented
highlighting the potential benefits of incorporating the knowledge base
on mathematical representations into a mathematics methods course and a
discussion ensues on the development of these teacher candidatesâ€™
pedagogical content knowledge through their choices of mathematical
representations in their lesson planning.
