“Not to lose the chain in learning mathematics”: expert teaching with variation in Shanghai
This paper reports on an expert teacher’s ideas and practice of teaching with variation that underpin her guidance of junior teachers in lesson design study in a research project in Shanghai, China. The data we analysed included the teacher’s lesson plan, teaching references, classroom materials, together with the video of the lesson and its transcript. Using the framework of teaching with variation, we identified four types of variation: task variation, example variation, calculation method variation, and exercises variation. The findings help towards a deeper understanding of the complexity of teaching expertise valued in the Chinese mathematics classroom.

Abstract

This paper reports on an expert teacher’s ideas and practice of teaching with variation that underpin her guidance of junior teachers in lesson design study in a research project in Shanghai, China. The data we analysed included the teacher’s lesson plan, teaching references, classroom materials, together with the video of the lesson and its transcript. Using the framework of teaching with variation, we identified four types of variation: task variation, example variation, calculation method variation, and exercises variation. The findings help towards a deeper understanding of the complexity of teaching expertise valued in the Chinese mathematics classroom.
