Teaching is a complex profession that requires knowledge of mathematics, pedagogical knowledge, knowledge of the students one teaches, as well as skill in managing the contexts of instruction.  Teacher education is also a complex enterprise that involves many uncoordinated components, constraints, and actors.  Faculty in mathematics focus their attention on teaching mathematics and often know little about pedagogical training, adolescent and child development, the history of education in the United States, teacher licensure, state regulations, accreditation, or the challenges faced by new teachers. Our panelists will address these issues which are all part of understanding mathematics teacher education.
