The goal of the study was to examine the nature of professionally oriented subject matter knowledge in mathematics. Therefore, the authors studied actual mathematics teaching and identified mathematical knowledge for teaching based on analyses of the mathematical problems that arise in teaching. In conjunction, measures of mathematical knowledge for teaching were developed.

Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching and the Mathematical Quality of Instruction: An Exploratory Study
This study illuminates the claims that teachers' mathematical knowledge plays an important role in their teaching of this subject matter. In particular, we focus on teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT), which includes both the mathematical knowledge that is common to individuals working in diverse professions and the mathematical knowledge that is specialized to teaching.A significant, strong, and positive association is found between levels of MKT and the mathematical quality of instruction.
