Summary

Values are taught in every lesson; however, in mathematics classes this seems to be implicit rather than explicit. This paper discusses an approach to explore the values that teachers teach in mathematics sessions and outlines methodological issues encountered in researching these values. First, ways of researching values is discussed and worked with individual teachers using a cycle of a preliminary interview, a classroom observation, and a post-observation debriefing interview on the same day. Overall the methods chosen for the exploration seem to be useful in collecting what appears to be rich data for insights to be gained as to what values teachers can plan to teach and what values remain implicit in their teaching. One crucial area that has emerged is finding a common language with which meaningful dialogue can occur. One of the issues that remains is to understand more fully the language that teachers use as they try to share with researchers and each other what values they wish to teach.
