Abstract: The focus of this paper was to identify and discuss the ways in which a specialist mathematics teacher, considered locally to be an ambassador for the subject, presented key conceptual knowledge about partitioning to young children (5-­‐6 years old) during a whole class activity. The case study reported here examined observation and interview data to identify the teacher’s rationale for her strategies, methods and resources used to support her teaching objectives. When analysing the data unexpected pedagogical questions arose regarding the teacher’s choice of resources and use of language to support children’s mathematical thinking and learning. The structure of the session was very confusing to the learning.
