Abstract

A student teacher’s work with concept maps illustrates the conceptual structure underpinning a teaching sequence in order to communicate efficiently his perceptions of what it means to developmentally and conceptually teach a selected topic in contrast to simply compiling a sequential list of sub-topics. Main insights from the case study were that constructing concept maps prompted the student teacher to reflect deeply about his own knowledge of mathematics beyond the assignment topic and challenged him to strategically organize the results of this thinking and conceptual analysis into visual, hierarchical displays of concept networks to parsimoniously and meaningfully illustrate the relationships between key and subsidiary concepts of the assignment topic.
