invites you to the colloquium:

Teachers’ Knowledge of Student Thinking and Their Instructional Practices in Algebra




Ayhan Kursat Erbas

UGA Mathematics Education Department

I observed and interviewed one eighth-grade teacher and one ninth-grade teacher of Algebra 1 to investigate and understand their knowledge of student thinking and instructional practices in algebra. The following research questions guided the study: What is the nature of teachers’ professional knowledge about student thinking in Algebra 1? How is this knowledge grounded? How does student thinking and knowledge of it inform teachers’ instructional practices?
What are teachers’ beliefs about student thinking in Algebra 1?
