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 and Mishra (2009) for technology-integrated teaching in which teaching is assumed as “an interaction between what teachers know and how they apply what they know” in different contexts lies as a fundamental idea behind this study (p. 62). Qualitative efforts were used in order to address research questions through two MLS groups. At the beginning, 9 participants volunteered for the interviews in order to investigate their views towards statistics teaching and technology integration into it. Distinguishing Teacher Assessment in Statistics (DTAS) Test were applied in order to analyze their content and pedagogical content knowledge. Before MLS began, a workshop was conducted to introduce virtual manipulatives which can be used in statistics teaching while recalling their statistical content knowledge. Through MLS period, each group prepared one lesson plan including a virtual manipulative for the instruction of a specific statistical concept. Data collected through MLS for each group contained three consecutive group discussions. Based on the findings, it was argued that preservice mathematics teachers’ TPACK changed and developed through MLS. They were observed to have significant developments regarding TPACK knowledge domains, especially in statistical content knowledge, statistical pedagogical knowledge and technological content knowledge.

Kubar, Ayşenur; Çakıroğlu, Erdinç; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2012)
The aim of the study is to examine the nature of pre-service elementary mathematics teachers’ subject matter knowledge about definition of integers and the nature of pre-service elementary mathematics teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge about definitions of integers. For this purpose, pre-service mathematics teachers’ knowledge about definitions of integers, their interpretations of quoted definitions of integers, their knowledge about elementary students’ possible misconceptions and errors regarding de...
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...
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...
