There have been only a few studies of Korean mathematics instruction in international contexts. Given this, this paper describes in detail a sixth grade teacher’s mathematics instruction in order to investigate closely what may be counted as high-quality teaching and learning in Korea. This paper then discusses several key characteristics of good mathematics instruction along with some background information on Korean educational practice. This paper concludes with remarks that good mathematics instruction may be perceived differently with regard to underlying social and cultural norms.
