This study aimed to evaluate a newly introduced elective course "Drama in Mathematics Education" into mathematics education curriculum from the viewpoints of pre-service mathematics teachers. A case study was employed in the study. The study group consisted of 37 pre-service mathematics teachers who were enrolled in a Turkish state university's faculty of education. The participants' written opinions were gathered about the course and the use of drama in teaching mathematics and the data were subjected to content analysis. Findings indicated that pre-service teachers think that the course is useful as it has many personal, professional and social benefits for them and the drama can be used in almost all subjects of mathematics.
