Abstract

We aim to examine the pre-service mathematics teachers' mathematical problem-solving processes by using dynamic geometry software and to determine their evaluations based on experiences in this process. The design is document analysis, one of the qualitative research approaches. In the fall semester of the 2019–2020 academic year, a three-problem task was carried out in a classroom environment where everyone could use geogebra individually. A total of 65 pre-service mathematics teachers enrolled in the course of educational technology. This task includes questions that they would use, their knowledge of basic geometric concepts to construct geometrical relations and evaluations related to this process. Besides the activity papers of the prospective teachers, geogebra files were also examined. The result is pre-service mathematics teachers who are thought to have a certain level of mathematical background are found to have incorrect/incomplete information even in the most basic geometric concepts and difficulties with regard to generalisation.
