Abstract

Teacher educators need to identify those aspects of preservice teacher (PST) mathematical content knowledge (MCK) that need developing. A methodology that unpacks the MCK that PSTs use in their teaching is presented in this paper. MCK in the teaching acts themselves and in the PST reflections on those acts is categorised and evaluated. The process is illustrated with a lesson excerpt from a secondary mathematics PST. The benefits and limitations associated with this methodology are also discussed.
