Scheiner, T. (2015). Theorising about mathematics teachers' professional knowledge: The content, form, nature, and source of teachers' knowledge. M. Marshman, V. Geiger, A. Bennison. Proceedings of the 38th annual conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia 563-570. Australia: Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia.
The guiding philosophy of this theoretical work lays in the argument that mathematics_teachers’ professional knowledge is the integration of various knowledge facets derived_from different sources including teaching experience and research. This paper goes beyond_past trends identifying what the teachers’ knowledge is about (content) by providing new_perspectives, in particular, on how the knowledge is structured and organised (form), on_what teachers’ draw on their knowledge (source), and whether the knowledge is stable and_coherent or contextually-sensitive and fluid (nature).
