Abstract: To understand how we might improve the teaching of mathematics we must turn some of our attention toward the knowledge that teachers need to know for teaching. The Pedagogical Content Knowledge in an Educational Context (PCK-EC) model is proposed as a framework to support teachers, coaches and researchers in the examination of teacher knowledge within a specific context (school, topic) and with a particular focus. This framework combines the theoretical and practical aspects represented by five dimensions of teachers’ Attitudes and teachers’ knowledge (Subject matter, Technology, Learners’ cognition, Pedagogy) and supports it with an Educational Context that includes curricular, technological, social, cultural, and teaching - learning, contexts.
