Contextual teaching and learning can fill the gap between abstract mathematical concepts and real life practices. Analytic geometry is among the courses which constitutes a gap in this regard. Moreover, when the relevant literature is reviewed, it is seen that researches on analytic geometry mainly focus on achievement and comparing the computer-aided software with other methods. In this context, this study aimed to investigate "How elementary preservice mathematics teachers learn cylindrical and spherical coordination in contextual teaching and learning environments, supported by the GeoGebra software." Case study was conducted. Eight preservice mathematics teachers participated in the study. The instruments of the study were composed of worksheets, semi-structured interviews and models, created through the GeoGebra software. As a result of the study; it was revealed that preservice mathematics teachers can learn cylindrical and spherical coordination in a meaningful and permanent way.
