Abstract

Our investigation is concerned with how new teachers develop their ability to understand student thinking. We conducted individual in- terviews with graduate students teaching calculus for the first time. We interviewed a representative sample of graduate students before and after their first teaching assignment. The interviews were tran- scribed and coded in order to assess how beginning teachers develop their mathematical knowledge for teaching.
