Tso, Tai-Yih (ed.), Proceedings of the 36th conference of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education “Opportunities to learn in mathematics education", PME 36, Taipei, Taiwan, July 18‒22, 2012, Vol. 4. Taipei: National Taiwan Normal University. 211-213 (2012).
Summary: The purpose of this study is to explore and compare the uniqueness of future lower secondary mathematics teachers from Taiwan and the US in mathematical language-related teaching competences (MTC-ML). A total of 161 and 171 future teachers from Taiwan and the US, respectively, participated in the study. The participants were drawn from samples of the TEDS-M, an international comparison study sponsored by IEA. Tests including items testing MTC-ML, regarding “thinking and reasoning" (TR) and “conceptually executing" (CE), were given immediately after the participants finished the TEDS-M questionnaires. The findings include that Taiwan performed better than the US in TR, but in CE, Taiwan and US performed the same. Compared to the US, Taiwanese future teachers were relatively stronger in TR than in CE.
