Abstract [en]

Teacher guides in mathematics from three cultural regions (Sweden, Flanders and the US) were analyzed concerning directive and educative guidance. Directive guidance is when the teacher guide clearly states what the teacher or the students are supposed to do. Educative guidance is when the teacher guide supports the teacher with information about student thinking, mathematical issues and similar. The results show that teacher guides from Flanders are more directive and the US together with one of two Swedish teacher guides are quite balanced. The second Swedish teacher guide stands out in being more educative than directive. This coincides with our understanding of the teaching traditions in the three regions.
