Prediction Assessments: Using Video-Based Predictions to Assess Prospective Teachers’ Knowledge of Students’ Mathematical Thinking
In this article, the authors have designed a new assessment instrument in order to evaluate the effectiveness of an experimental elementary mathematics field experience course. The findings suggest that prediction assessments effectively evaluate the pedagogical content knowledge that authors are seeking to foster among the prospective teachers.

The Nature of Prospective Mathematics Teachers’ Pedagogical Content Knowledge: The Case of Multiplication of Fractions
The current study aimed to explore prospective mathematics teachers’ knowledge of common conceptions and misconceptions that sixth and seventh grade students had about multiplication of fractions. In addition, prospective teachers’ knowledge of the sources of these misconceptions and strategies they knew to overcome these misconceptions was examined. The prospective teachers suggested many difficulties that elementary grade level students may have.

Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) in Action: A Descriptive Study of Secondary Teachers’ Curriculum-Based, Technology-Related Instructional Planning
In this study, the authors were interested to examine the nature and development of teachers’ TPACK as it is applied in instructional planning. The authors also examined how planning changes when professional development focuses upon the design of content-based learning activities that are supported by selective and purposeful integration of educational technologies. The participants in this study were seven experienced social studies teachers from six different U.S. states. The results indicate that a content-based, activity-types approach to technologically inclusive instructional planning is compatible with existing approaches to teaching.

How Pre-service Teachers Observe Teaching on Video: Effects of Viewers’ Teaching Subjects and the Subject of the Video
In this study, the authors studied subject matter impact for professional vision (pv) in pre-service teachers. The authors systematically investigated pre-service teachers’ professional vision as elicited by videos of various subjects. The authors compared between professional vision of 32 math/science majors' and 56 social science/humanities majors. The authors found evidence for different professional visions among pre-service teachers majoring in different fields; social sciences/humanities majors showed higher professional vision.

This article reports on the effectiveness of a programme designed to enhance aspects of teacher knowledge believed to contribute to successful teaching for numeracy in the middle years of schooling. Teacher profiling instruments and pupil surveys of their classes were administered at the beginning and end of the programme. This programme shows that progress can be made on pupils’ numeracy levels with a dedicated programme .
