Исследование убеждений и представлений учителей математики об обучении математике в основной школе
The article describes the results of the research aimed to compare mathematics practicing teachers' beliefs about general approaches on teaching and learning, their beliefs about mathematics teaching and learning and their real classroom practice in four countries: Estonia, Latvia, Finland and Russia. NorBA (Nordic-Baltic comparative research in mathematics education) questionnaire was used in this study. There were obtained statistically significant differences for all analyzed scales. Math teachers' general beliefs about teaching are related with their view of effective mathematics teaching. Teachers' beliefs are realized in their classroom practice. Russian teachers demonstrated a significantly higher level of constructivism both in general approach of teaching, and in beliefs about effective teaching of mathematics. However, a third of Russian teachers are referred to a group of traditionalists.
