This study aimed to determine female mathematics teachers’ level of performance in employing the teaching practices necessary to develop mathematical writing among female primary school students. It used the descriptive survey approach and collected data through observation. The study sample comprised 48 female teachers. The study generated several interesting results, most notably that the mathematics teachers’ level of performance was average, with overall means of 1.92–3, and there were statistically significant differences at the level of α < .05 in the level of teaching practices employed attributable to teaching experience in favor of the group with fewer than 10 years’ experience. Based on these results, the study makes several recommendations. Primarily, it proposes that training programs for in-service female mathematics teachers should be strengthened, ensuring they cover the teaching practices necessary to develop mathematical writing skills.
