|Other Titles:||A Case Study of a Mathematics Teacher's Use of the Textbook: Adapting the Teaching Activity on Polyhedron|
Center for Educational Research and Evaluation
The purpose of this study is to explore how a teacher adapts the textbook activity on polyhedron and what factors affect the adaptation. The data of this study was collected from a primary school teacher, also an experienced textbook editor, who has been teaching for twenty years; the method used includes classroom observation, in-depth interview, and focus group discussion. The teacher uses four types of textbook adaptation for activities and questions when she teaches students about polyhedron: addition, replacement, omission, and reorganization. Three factors may affect the adaptation. The first one is the representation of the textbook, which includes the physical objects, tasks, and concepts. The second factor is teacher's personal knowledge and habit which includes mathematics knowledge, knowledge of students' mathematical learning,mathematics pedagogical content knowledge, and personal habit and perspective.The last one is the context which includes time, quantity of teaching aids, andsupport from the experts. Last but not the least, this study makes suggestions on the design of the textbook, teacher training and important aspects of further study.
