Abstract [en]

This article offers a qualitative analysis of videotaped mathematics lessons taught by fourteachers in a provincial university city in Finland. My study is framed not only by Finnishsuccess on Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) but also by theobjectives of current mathematics education reform, which are consistent with PISA’sgoals of measuring mathematical literacy. The analyses indicated that conceptual understandingand procedural fluency were addressed by all four teachers. However, adaptivereasoning, strategic competence, and the development of a productive dispositionappear rarely. I observed few occasions where students were invited to solve authenticproblems.
