The aim of this study is to investigate perceptions of preservice mathematics teachers’ technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) regarding geometry. In addition, the purpose is to examine the relationships among the components of TPACK. Moreover, possible gender and year of enrollment differences related to preservice mathematics teachers’ technological pedagogical content knowledge dimensions are examined. This research study has been conducted with 780 preservice mathematics teachers who are enrolled in elementary mathematics education department of Education Faculties of seven public universities located in Central Anatolia. Perceived TPACK regarding geometry instrument has been developed to collect data. In order to determine the levels of preservice mathematics teachers’ perceptions related to TPACK in geometry, descriptive information have been used. The results indicate that preservice mathematics teachers’ perceptions of TPACK related to geometry is higher than moderate. Furthermore, correlational analysis was conducted to identify the relationship among dimensions of TPACK. Positive significant correlations among the components of the TPACK framework were found in correlational analysis. Besides, two-way MANOVA has been conducted to investigate a possible relationship between demographic information of preservice elementary mathematics teachers and their perceptions of TPACK. According to the MANOVA results, there are statistically significant differences between male and female preservice mathematics teachers in favor of male participants in three components of TPACK, namely technological knowledge, technological pedagogical knowledge and technological pedagogical content knowledge in favour of males.

This study attempted to investigate a pre-service mathematics teacher’s Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge regarding different views of 3-D figures in geometry. Data were collected from a pre-service teacher, enrolled in one of the large public universities in Ankara while she was teaching different views of 3-D figures in seventh-grade level in one of the private schools. Interviews, observations, field notes, GeoGebra files, and lesson plans were the data collection tools used in the study. Data ...
Promoting and investigating pre-service middle school mathematics teachers' TPACK-practical development in the context of an undergraduate course
Koştur, Merve; Haser, Çiğdem; Department of Elementary Education (2018)
The purpose of the study was to enhance and investigate the technological pedagogical content knowledge-practical (TPACK-P) development of pre-service middle school mathematics teachers (PMTs) through the Technology Use in Mathematics Education (TUME) course aiming TPACK-P development in three pedagogical domains: Assessment, Planning and Design, and Enactment. TUME course was designed and implemented based on four principles driven from the TPACK and TPACK-P frameworks which were transformative approach, c...
Technological pedagogical content knowledge (tpack) development of preservice middle school mathematics teachers in statistics teaching: a microteaching lesson study
Kurt, Gamze; Çakıroğlu, Erdinç; Department of Elementary Education (2016)
The current study examined the development of technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) of preservice mathematics teachers in statistics teaching with virtual manipulatives in the context of a microteaching lesson study (MLS). Since “technology integration is described by how and why it is used rather its amount or type”, integrating technology into education necessitates investigation of instructional uses of digital tools and resources (Earle, 2002, p. 8). TPACK framework suggested by Koehler an...

Tekin Sitrava, Reyhan; Işıksal Bostan, Mine; Department of Elementary Education (2014)
The purpose of this study was to examine middle school mathematics teachers' subject matter knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge of the volume of 3D solids. In order to achieve the purpose of the study, four middle school teachers working in public schools in Ankara participated in the study. To get deep and rich answers to research questions asked, qualitative methodology was used.Participants were selected through purposeful sampling. Data was gathered via questionnaire, semi-structured interviews,...
Use of learning trajectories based instruction to restructure pre-service elementary teachers’ mathematical content and student knowledge
Yılmaz, Zuhal; Haser, Çiğdem; Department of Elementary Education (2015)
The purpose of this study was to explore elementary pre-service teachers’ (PTs) mathematical content knowledge (MCK) and student knowledge (SK) restructuring practices for equipartitioning related mathematical ideas. Nine senior PTs from a private university located southeastern part of the Turkey were voluntarily participated to Learning Trajectories Based Instruction (LTBI) teaching experiment. Classroom video data, written works of PTs, pre-post tests and field notes were the main sources of the data col...
