This study suggests that measures based on the construct of MKT as conceptualized in the United States are valid for use in at least one setting outside the United States. Methods of establishing conceptual equivalence are identified; future research should refine further cross-cultural measurement of teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching.A task of teaching observed in the Irish lessons was eliciting the meaning of an operation. ... However, the idea of sharing three kilograms of butter equally among one half people makes no sense, and is unlikely ... Ball wrote that her 3rd grade students investigated the relationship between the comparison and take away interpretations of subtraction (Ball aamp; Bass, 2000a, p. ... MKT In Ireland the term aquot;sumaquot; refers to both the result of combining two addends and to operations generically, anbsp;...
