Abstract

This study examines differences in connectedness in instruction between two novice teachers and an expert teacher. Three types of data related to lessons on equivalent algebraic expressions were collected: lesson plans, lesson observations, and post-lesson interviews. Although connectedness is an important characteristic of mathematics teaching and learning, only the expert teacher used both lesson and content connections to guide her teaching. Differences in the teachers' views and uses of connectedness in instruction are discussed and illustrated.
