Abstract

This paper provides an analysis of mathematics teachers' use of curriculum materials. 13 elementary mathematics teachers participated in the interviews for how they used the curriculum materials, specifically textbooks. The purpose of this study is to examine what mathematics teachers do with curriculum materials and how they use them for mathematics. The results of the interviews indicated that mathematics teachers used different textbooks to make instructional decisions, and they mostly adapted problems and examples in a constructive way.
