Summary: This chapter presents the cognitive affective mathematics teacher education (CAMTE) framework, a framework used in planning and implementing professional development for teachers. The CAMTE framework takes into consideration teachers’ knowledge as well as self-efficacy beliefs to teach mathematics. The context of counting and enumeration is used to illustrate how the framework can be used to investigate preschool teachers’ knowledge and self-efficacy related to children’s conceptions. Different aspects of teachers’ knowledge, such as knowledge of students and knowledge of tasks are discussed. Ways of promoting teachers’ self-efficacy are also presented. Finally, the case of one preschool teacher is described in detail, showing how the teacher began to adopt a constructivist approach to instruction.
