Abstract [en]

This paper reports on a qualitative analysis of video-taped mathematics lessons taught by four case study teachers, defined locally as effective, in a provincial university city in Finland. The aim was to examine how teachers conceptualise and present mathematics to their learners and, in so doing, understand the relationship between Finnish mathematics teaching practices, as reflected in case study lessons, and Finnish success on successive PISA assessments. Analysed by means of the process of constant comparison, the data yielded two key characteristics of case study classrooms. Firstly, irrespective of their intended learning outcome, teachers exploited a series of implicit didactic strategies focused on encouraging students to infer meaning. Secondly, three culturally located activities were identified that appeared complementary to this sense of the implicit. These were the systemic encouragement of students to make notes, teachers’ exploitation of the confident child and the assumed collaboration of parents.
