Özet

This study investigates pre-service elementary mathematics teachers' development of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) through a school practicum course. Four components of PCK were determined and used for the design of the school practicum course. A case study was designed to investigate two pre-service teachers' PCK development with regard to number patterns. Data indicated that observations in real classroom settings and discussions of these observations resulted in considerable improvement in pre-service teachers' PCK especially with regard to the knowledge of student difficulties.
