  • The purpose of this study is to understand the decision-making behavior of a mathematics teacher in science academy of Korea by applying the framework of class analysis through the theory of goal-oriented decision-making. To this end, we selected as the participant a mathematics teacher in charge of the class of basic calculus of science high school for the gifted in the metropolitan area, and observed the teacher's lesson. Based on a questionnaire derived from previous studies, we analyzed goals, orientations and resources of the teacher. Research results show that there are certain teaching routines by analyzing the behavior patterns that appear repeatedly in the teacher's lesson. Also we understand that it can be used on goals, orientations and resources of the teacher to adequately explain his teaching routine. In the present study, in particular, it was found to have a similar but partially different routines to the teaching routines shown in the study of Schoenfeld. From these findings, We can derive the implications that the theory of goal-oriented decision making can be suitably used as analytical tool for understanding the behavior of the teacher who pursue a productive interaction in mathematics lesson in Korea.
