Summary Reasoning is an important aspect in the understanding and learning of mathematics. This paper reports on a case study presenting one Australian primary teacher’s reflections regarding the role played by a professional learning program in her developing understanding of mathematical reasoning. Examination of the transcripts of two interviews identified changes in her perceptions of mathematical reasoning by mapping interview responses against the Mathematical Reasoning Framework (Herbert et al., 2015). This change indicates that a well planned program of professional learning based on a demsonstration is efficacious in developing teachers’ understanding of mathematical reasoning.
