Problem solving strategies of eight pre-service secondary school mathematics teachers (PSSMTs) were examined in this study. A case study research design was employed and clinical interview technique was used to collect the data. Materials collected for analysis consisted of audiotapes and videotapes of clinical interviews, subjects' notes and drawings, and researchers' notes during the interview. Strategies used by PSSMTs to solve a problem called "the fencing problem" were identified. Findings of the study suggest that the subjects used combinations of different strategies to solve problems. The implications of the finding were also discussed.
