However, geometry is the area with the most concrete possibility of mathematical topics which contains more abstract concepts, students experience difficulties while understanding. Therefore, the connection of issues with daily life to concrete the subjects and the ability of connecting geometric concepts with daily life of the teachers and pre-service teachers who will teach these subjects become more important. In this study, the geometric concepts of pre-service mathematics teachers along with their ability of connection with daily life will be examined. 79 senior students studying at the Department of Elementary Mathematics Teaching at the Faculty of Education were asked to give examples from daily life of 21 geometric concepts in the Middle School Mathematics Curriculum. The received responses were analyzed with descriptive content analysis. Upon the examination of the answers given, it was observed that students mostly gave examples of what they had learned since primary school and of terms they used in the lessons frequently.
