This collective case study examines the influence of 4 third-grade teachers' beliefs and knowledge on their error-handling practices during class discussion of mathematics. Across cases, 3 dimensions of teachers' error-handling practices are identified and discussed in relation to teacher beliefs and knowledge: (a) intentional focus on flawed solutions in class discussion, (b) promotion of conceptual understanding through discussion of errors, and (c) mobilization of a community of learners to address errors. Study findings suggest that, although teachers' ways of handling student errors during class discussion of mathematics are clearly linked to both teacher beliefs and teacher knowledge, some aspects of teacher response are more strongly linked to knowledge and others are influenced more by beliefs.
