The purpose of this study was to investigate preservice chemistry teachersâ€™ science expectations on learning science after they completed the introductory Context-Based Chemistry Problem Solving. The sampling of the study consisted of 22 preservice chemistry teachers studying at Hacettepe University, Faculty of Education. The scores obtained by participating groups from the â€˜Science Expectations Questionnaireâ€™. In addition, preservice teachersâ€™ interviews are given as evidence. As a result of the evaluation of preservice chemistry teachersâ€™ the expectations about learning science on independence, coherence, concept, reality link, math link and effort dimensions, it is thought that there will be important outcomes in terms of improvement of the quality of teacher training at the university and that there will be an important contribution to literature in this sense.
