    Abstract

    110 pre-service teachers' reflections of what were co-valued in effective mathematics lessons in Melbourne (Australia) and Singapore were analysed in a research study reported in this paper. 64 values were recorded, of which 29 were unique to Melbourne. These values were predominantly mathematics educational/pedagogical in nature. A new category of values, (teacher) personality values, was identified. A majority of the most cited values across Melbourne and Singapore were similar, although these might be enacted differently. The research significance and implications for future, related research are discussed.
