The motivation for this study is to understand the professional knowledge that a teacher displays in her classroom when she teaches mathematics classes. To this end, our goal is to describe the possible relationships of the subdomains of Mathematics Teacher’s Specialised Knowledge (MTSK) model and the Conceptions about Mathematics Teaching and Learning (CMTL) that are integrated in it. This article presents a position on professional knowledge, the methodological design used has been an interpretative approach with a case study design of a 5th grade teacher in Primary Education, and some results which exemplify how these relationships have been identified and analyzed, and how they have helped to explain and understand the knowledge that the teacher mobilizes in her classroom. Finally, we express how this study can be used for teacher training in mathematics.
