Abstract: The paper presents a case study, which investigated a primary student teacher's developing proficiency with constructing concept maps and vee diagrams as tools to guide the analyses of syllabus outcomes and to facilitate the design of activities that develop deep understanding of mathematics concepts. Findings suggest the student teacher developed a deeper understanding of the developmental nature of the division concept as outlined in syllabus outcomes, which empowered her to confidently provide mathematical justifications for strategies to solve problems.
