Abstract or Summary
  • A teacher's mathematical knowledge for teaching has been shown to have a positive correlation with their students' success (Monk, 1994). So, when half of the students that start out in a STEM major switch out to a non-STEM major before graduation to in large part to instructors pedagogical methods and inadequate teaching we must ask what does the mathematical knowledge for teaching look like at this level (Lowery, 2010; Seymour & Hewitt, 1997). To address this, there has been a lot of research in developing professional training activities for graduate teaching assistants that would build their mathematical knowledge for teaching. This research is being conducted without ever having looked at the mathematical knowledge for teaching that these graduate teaching assistants possess. In this research over a series of interviews with four graduate teaching assistants asking them questions about their mathematical knowledge for teaching. The results of this study are present here in this thesis.
