Abstract

Pedagogical content knowledge is the intersection of a teacher’s knowledge of content, pedagogy, and the context of the learning situation, including students. This study offers another approach to improve pedagogical content knowledge of mathematics teachers through MGMP based ELPSA framework. This framework provides a structure for identifying how mathematical concepts and understanding are acquired and developed. ELPSA represents five learning components: Experience, Language, Pictorial, Symbolic and Applications. The subjects of this study were 15 MGMP participants who were trained to design mathematical learning using the ELPSA framework, apply it in the classroom, reflect, and revise the design to produce a lesson plan that allows students to engage mathematically and have problem-solving skills. The data collected were analyzed by triangulating data gathered through observation of instructional events, teacher group discussion and assessments of content knowledge. The results indicated that the teachers lesson plan developed better than ever. They consider student misconception and provide scaffolding and math problems related to daily life. Teachers also feel that their teaching atmosphere in the classroom is more positive. Students talk about mathematics with others and they understand mathematics better and able to use it in problem solving.
