SEGARRA, Jaime  and  JULIA, Carmen. Mathematical knowledge of elementary education student teachers: variable analysis. Uniciencia [online]. 2021, vol.35, n.1, pp.124-138. ISSN 2215-3470.

The paper studies the knowledge elementary school student teachers have regarding numbers and geometry. This research study is quantitative and used descriptive and inferential statistical techniques. A total of 20 released questions were selected from the TIMSS test and applied to 97 first-year students in an Elementary Education program. Results were presented in two different sections. The first section shows that those who come from a Bachelor's Degree in Science and have received mathematics in the last two years obtained higher scores (p < 0.05). The second section indicates that students obtain higher scores in the number content domain and the knowing cognitive domain (p < 0.05). The study will strengthen the weaknesses presented by the groups of students when redesigning the Teaching and Learning Mathematics course.

Keywords : Arithmetic; geometry; teachers in training; elementary education; reasoning; TIMSS; Mathematics education; Mathematical knowledge.
