By Cigdem Arslan and Gunes Yavuz

Abstract

AbstractThe purpose of this study is to determine the prospective teachers’ self-efficacy beliefs about mathematical literacy, and examine these beliefs in terms of some variables. The survey was conducted among 140 prospective mathematics and physics teachers.
