Abstract

The potential of tasks to stimulate students’ mathematical thinking and the adequate use of this potential in instruction are prominent indicators for instructional quality. Since the assessment of a task’s potential depends on the aims of instruction, it may be argued that corresponding perspectives vary between cultural contexts. However, so far, this has not been systematically investigated in cross-cultural comparisons. In this study, we investigate whether Western (German; N=17) and East Asian (Taiwanese; N=19) professors of mathematics education have different perspectives on the potential of word problems for students’ learning and the use of this potential in instruction by means of vignettes from a cross-cultural research project. We illustrate how differences reflect cultural aspects of mathematics instruction.
