stylianides offers a definition of proof in the context of a classroom community that
includes three criteria: Proof is a mathematical argument, a connected sequence
of assertions for or against a mathematical claim, with the following
characteristics: 1. it uses statements accepted by the classroom community (set of
accepted statements) that are true and available without further justification; 2. it
employs forms of reasoning (modes of argumentation) that are valid and known
to, or within ...

More abstractly, how does the source of Josh's error connect to additive
procedures, the distributive property, multiplication algorithms, multiplication of
binomials, and so on? ... The key to turning even poorly prepared prospective
elementary teachers into mathematical thinkers is to work from what they do
know — the mathematical ideas they hold, the skills they possess, and the
contexts in which these are understood — so they can move from where they are
to where they need to go.

This kind of seminar community is the hub of the teachers' professional world.
The character of a DMI seminar community—its supportiveness, agenda, and
rigor—owes a good deal to the three core aspects of the semi- nar set out in
chapter 1: (a) the solidity and complexity of the mathematics, (b) the concurrent
study of teachers' and students' mathematics, and (c) the parallel between the
seminar's pedagogy and envisioned elementary classroom pedagogy. In that first
chapter, ...

This knowledge is indeed mathematical; Ball, Thames, and Phelps (2008) claim
that “deciding whether a method or procedure would work in general[,] ...
determining the validity of a mathematical argument, or selecting a
mathematically appropriate representation ... requires mathematical knowledge
and skill, not knowledge of students or teaching” (p. 398). Such specialized
mathe- matical knowledge helps teachers construct good classroom problems
