Abstract


This study focuses on understanding the reflection on teaching practices of two mathematics teachers teaching technical mathematics in a technical institute. For the purpose of this study, reflection is considered as the teachers’ interpretation of their teaching practices. These teachers were interviewed to describe their teaching practices aspects including the teaching plan, teaching strategy, goal setting, their strength and weakness of being a teacher and handling students’ problem in class. A class observation was done by the researcher to get more information related to their teaching in class. The finding shows that the teachers managed to reflect on what they have done in the class but they could not identify the right action to be taken.
