Developing Pre-Service Teachers' Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics with the Geometer's Sketchpad through Lesson Study

Chew Cheng Meng, Lim Chap Sam

Abstract


The purpose of this study was to develop pre-service secondary teachers' technological pedagogical content
knowledge (TPACK) for teaching mathematics with The Geometer’s Sketchpad (GSP) through Lesson Study
(LS). Specifically, a single-group pretest-posttest design was employed to examine whether there was a
significant difference in the pre-service secondary teachers' TPACK for teaching mathematics with GSP after
engaging in LS which was incorporated into the mathematics teaching methods course during the first semester
of the 2011/2012 academic session in a Malaysian public university. Forty-six pre-service secondary teachers
who enrolled in the course completed both the pretest and posttest questionnaires on teachers' TPACK for
teaching mathematics with GSP. The results of the paired-samples t-test indicated that there was a significant
difference in the pre-service secondary teachers' TPACK for teaching mathematics with GSP for all the
subscales after engaging in LS.
