This study examines prospective teachers' beliefs in their own abilities and effectiveness to impart mathematical literacy to their students, their beliefs about mathematical problem solving, and the relationship between these two belief systems. A total of 567 prospective teachers, majoring in mathematics, science and elementary teacher education programs volunteered to participate in the study. The Self-Efficacy Beliefs Scale about Mathematical Literacy and the Beliefs about Mathematical Problem solving instruments were administered to prospective teachers. Results of the study revealed that there was a significant relationship between the beliefs about mathematical problem solving and self-efficacy. Findings of this study indicated that prospective teachers' beliefs about mathematical literacy were an important predictor on the beliefs about mathematical problem solving. (Contains 10 tables.)
