Abstract
Mathematical reasoning (MR), highlighted in curricular orientations, is a necessary students’ skill in mathematical learning. As the knowledge to promote this skill is limited and challenging for teachers practices, is required to use adequate design principles in pre-service teacher education to develop PTs mathematical and didactical knowledge to promote students’ MR in teaching practices. This study aims to establish and understand positive contributes of adopted design principles and their operationalization in pre-service teacher education experiments, and the results revealed the potential of adopted design principles to promote the development of PTs’ knowledge of MR and ability to promote students’ MR in teaching practices.
