ab: The goal of this chapter is to review some reflections on a problem
situation from a Japanese $8^{th}$ grade lesson included in the TIMSS
1999 Video Study. After presenting some excerpts from the lesson we
discuss some questions for teacher development from the Lesson Lab
course Explorations of Algebra Teaching: - Why did the teacher in this
lesson have the students present their strategies in the order that he
did? - Wouldn’t it be a more effective approach to algebra just to
present the final equations and inequalities statements and to forget
the lower level attempts made by some students? As a theoretical basis,
we review the roots of our genesis viewpoint. Next we present some
reasoning behind the use of videos for professional development work
helping teachers to become reflective practitioners. (Authors’
