The purpose of this study is to analyze how particular mathematics teacher educators (MTEs) use knowledge in their practice. Furthermore, this study also examines how they use this analysis as a tool for understanding the knowledge demands of work with preservice elementary teachers and how this knowledge is different from that required to teach K-12 students. The authors describe different forms of knowledge observed across different mathematics teacher educators’ practice and discuss how the observed knowledge forms are different from knowledge used by K-12 teachers in their practice. They argue that there needs to be more of a focus on understanding the knowledge drawn on by teacher educators as they teach content to preservice teachers.

In this article, the authors focus on one aspect of instruction, the extent of cognitive demand that characterizes reading and mathematics instruction in fourth- and fifth-grade classrooms. The authors wanted to explore whether the instructional styles of teachers who teach in both subject areas exhibited similar amounts of cognitive demand. The findings suggest that the level of cognitive demand exhibited in the tasks teachers pose and the responses and work of students are similar in mathematics and reading.
