This study investigated how prospective teachers notice student mathematical thinking in a video-based learning environment and in analyzing students’ thinking when they conduct a research in their practice schools in the scope of a 14-week elective course program. Instructional process of the course had two phases. In the first phase, a group of eight prospective mathematics teachers analysed video cases related to students’ mathematical thinking. In the second phase, they explored actual students’ mathema...
