There is an increased emphasis on the mathematics teacher as the facilitator and mediator of mathematical knowledge (e.g., Askew, 2002, p. 14; Curriculum Development Council, 2002, pp. iii-iv). Askew (2002, p. 14) maintains that an effective teacher must have a broad understanding of mathematics as a discipline itself. He/she should also have the ability to listen to and understand pupils’ own thinking, and to connect the thinking to the underlying mathematics. This paper aims to determine student mathematics teachers’ perceived strategies in teaching mathematics in secondary schools. Copyright © 2004 Hawaii International Conference on Education.
