Teachers’ pedagogical decision making is a complex process. In the teaching and learning process, a pedagogical decision making involves intuitive, analytical and deliberative decisions. In addition, the evaluation process of the students’ achievement during instruction is also an essential aspect in making decision pedagogically. The decision making process in this study was observed through two phases. The first phase was carried out quantitatively involving 997 teachers while the second phase was done qualitatively involving 100 teachers of five core subjects: Malay Language, English language, Mathematics, Science and History. This paper focuses on the second phase of the study that involved 20 secondary mathematics teachers. Data was collected through observations, recorded documents and narratives related through classroom instructions in order to identify attributes used by the mathematics teachers in pedagogical decision making. The finding of this study identified the following attributes: accountability, students’ ability, beliefs about the teaching and learning of mathematics, the application of the exposition method, textbooks used, and inability to prioritize skills to be taught, teaching and learning activities to be carried out as well as the use of examples and teaching and learning materials.
