Abstract

Who are the teachers that get good results in teaching mathematics and science? Does gender, qualifications, attitude or experience have anything to do with it? Fabian Arends analysed results from the 2011 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) and found a dissonance between what teachers say about themselves and the achievements of their students.
