Abstract [en]

Many frameworks for teacher knowledge describe the work of a mathematics teacher as highly complex and therefore requires specialized competences (e.g. Rowland & Ruthven, 2011). At the same time, countries around the world have difficulties in recruiting highly qualified students to teacher education. Furthermore, teacher educators often express that prospective teachers question the amount and level of mathematics that they have to learn. Research on views about teaching often focuses on teachers’ views (Philipp, 2007). Less is known about students’ views about working as a teacher and how those might influence their choice of a profession. The focus of this study is on the views that students have on mathematical challenges associated with the work of a mathematics teacher, when compared to other occupations.

Abstract [en]

Despite many similarities between the neighbouring countries Sweden and Finland, prior studies indicate that conceptualizations and discourses about school-based teacher education are very different. In this paper we add to this picture of differences, and contribute to the research discourse about school-based teacher education, by identifying and characterizing aspects of mathematics teaching made relevant in review meetings between mentors and prospective primary teachers. While the Swedish discourse typically focuses on the students’ individual work with textbooks, connections to everyday experiences and teaching as individual supervision, the Finnish discourse emphasizes lesson aims, learning and progression in mathematics through formative assessment and differentiation according to pupils’ abilities
