Abstract [en]

This paper reports a design of a learning study at mathematics teacher education. The object of learning is to develop a structure of pedagogical content knowledge in mathematics. Pedagogical content knowledge can be described as subject matter knowledge for teaching and implies an awareness of interrelating components of importance for teaching a particular topic in mathematics. Interrelating components addressed in this article are preconceptions, connections to governing documents, models for explanation, suitable exercises and hands-on materials. The object of learning is not content or lesson specific, but an overall object, applicable to several lessons/topics in the course. The nature of the object of learning and other characteristics of the study, call for an unusual, but still well developed design of the learning study. The focus this article is on the design of the learning study, which will be presented and discussed. A hypothesis of the study is that students who get exposed to such pedagogical content knowledge at several occasions with different (mathematical) content would be able to transfer this knowledge to a new topic. The study takes place in a mathematics course for prospective primary school teachers in the later part of their studies. Briefly the design is as follows: pretests (3) are conducted after lessons not taught within the learning study cycle. Posttests (3) are conducted after learning study lessons. Two different groups will undergo all tests. The results of the pre and posttests together with video observation, analysis and research are base for the development of the object of learning in the learning study cycle. Because a natural progress in results can be expected, the progress within the pretests can be compared with the progress within the posttests. Of course the results on pre- and posttests will be mutually compared as well.
