The Nature and Predictors of Elementary Teachers’ Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching

Heather C. Hill 

November 2010, Volume 41, Issue 5, Page 513

Abstract:
This article explores elementary school teachers’ mathematical knowledge for teaching and the relationship between such knowledge and teacher characteristics. There were few substantively significant relationships between mathematical knowledge for teaching and teacher characteristics, including leadership activities and self-reported college-level mathematics preparation. Implications for current policies aimed at improving teacher quality are addressed.
