Abstract [en]

This paper reports a design of a learning study at mathematics teacher education. Theobject 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 andimplies an awareness of interrelating components of importance for teaching a particular topic inmathematics. Interrelating components addressed in this article are preconceptions, connectionsto governing documents, models for explanation, suitable exercises and hands-on materials. Theobject of learning is not content or lesson specific, but an overall object, applicable to severallessons/topics in the course. The nature of the object of learning and other characteristics of thestudy, call for an unusual, but still well developed design of the learning study. The focus thisarticle is on the design of the learning study, which will be presented and discussed. Ahypothesis of the study is that students who get exposed to such pedagogical content knowledgeat several occasions with different (mathematical) content would be able to transfer thisknowledge to a new topic. The study takes place in a mathematics course for prospective primaryschool teachers in the later part of their studies. Briefly the design is as follows: pretests (3) areconducted after lessons not taught within the learning study cycle. Posttests (3) are conductedafter learning study lessons. Two different groups will undergo all tests. The results of the preand posttests together with video observation, analysis and research are base for the developmentof the object of learning in the learning study cycle. Because a natural progress in results can beexpected, 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
