Modeling and Measuring Teachers’ praxeologies for teaching mathematics

Sara Lehné defends her MSc-thesis in mathematics

Supervisor: prof. Carl Winsløw, IND.

External examiner: Prof. Morten Misfeldt, AAU.

Abstract:

Teachers' mathematical and didactical knowledge has over the last century become of greater interest to research and institutions surrounding the educational system. This
interest has resulted in the development of instruments for measuring teachers’ knowledge. In this thesis, I will present three of such instruments which are used today to measure praxeologies for teaching mathematics along with the framework surrounding them. Afterward items from the instruments will be analysed using the Anthropological Theory of Didactics. This analysis will result in a comparison of the mathematical and didactical content in the three instruments along with an evaluation of whether the instruments correspond to their theoretical frameworks.
