Koparan, Timur

This study aimed at exploring the quality of teaching materials developed by prospective mathematics teachers and their viewpoints on developing teaching materials. It was carried out with 170 prospective teachers from 4 classes in the Fall Semester of 2014-2015 Academic Year. During the first 8 weeks of the 14-week-long study, the theoretical parts and teaching technologies of the course were introduced. In the next 6 weeks, the prospective teachers were expected to present the materials they developed in a classroom environment. Data were collected through the materials prepared by the prospective teachers, classroom observations, and survey questions. The data underwent content and descriptive analysis. Findings indicate that prospective teachers can prepare materials and use the teaching technologies at a satisfactory level. They believed they gained the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes in this course to develop and use teaching materials, and they would like to take advantage of these knowledge and skills in their teaching profession. In accordance with the findings, it is concluded that prospective teachers have positive views and attitudes to general teaching technologies and material development.
