Abstract [en]

This paper reports on a small-scale EU-funded study of the teaching of mathematics in the agerange 10-14 in Flanders, England, Hungary and Spain. Drawing on video recordings ofsequences of lessons taught on standard topics, and exploiting a coding schedule developedfrom live observations in each country, the inferable learning objectives of, and the didacticstrategies teachers employ during, each of a lesson's episodes are examined. Two analyseswere undertaken. The first, despite some common ground, indicated that teachers in eachcountry behave in ways similar to teachers from the same country that distinguishes themfrom teachers elsewhere. The second identified typologies of teacher behaviour that wereinternational in their teacher composition and challenged the robustness of the national script
