Guershon Harel and Jeffrey M. Rabin 

January 2010, Volume 41, Issue 1, Page 14

Abstract:
This Brief Report summarizes case studies of the classroom teaching practices of two algebra teachers. The data consist of videotaped classroom observations during one academic year. The study identifies and characterizes specific teaching practices that establish the norm that the teacher is the sole arbiter of mathematical correctness in the classroom.
