Abstract

Abstract The success of all students has an intimate relationship with good teachers and one of the main components of student’s success will depend upon the belief about the subject. The method of education must start from the life situation and reality of life and the teacher has a vital role in the development and influence of belief. The effectiveness of teaching depends upon teacher’s different types of skills, beliefs, feelings, emotions etc. Beliefs have generally been perceived through the personal experiences and interactions with immediate environmental setting. Our curriculum focuses on the aspects of cognitive development of students but the hidden aspect of teaching and learning activities is ‘belief’. This society needs the teachers who are innovative and make changes according to the needs of the students. This study focusses to explore the responses of prospective teachers towards their belief in mathematics. Many researches argued that individual’s belief influences in modification of their behaviour and ability to make decisions throughout the life by focusing on these beliefs. The purpose of study is to identify the beliefs about the nature of mathematics, beliefs about mathematics in daily life, beliefs about competence in mathematics, beliefs about mathematics teaching and learning among prospective teachers. The study adopted survey method. Sample for the study consisted of 60 prospective teachers in mathematics. The tool used for collecting the required information is Mathematical Belief Inventory consisting of four dimensions: the beliefs about the nature of mathematics, beliefs about mathematics in daily life, beliefs about mathematics teaching and learning, and beliefs about competence in mathematics. The percentage analysis reveals that prospective teachers have high beliefs that mathematics increase thinking power, includes abstract concepts, develops logical thinking, develops scientific thinking, helps in day today activities, has its own formula, symbols and rules and uses different methods in teaching and learning.

Key Words
