Bu çalışmada, ilköğretim matematik öğretmen adaylarının problem çözme süreçlerinde ne tür temsil kullandıkları ve bu temsillerle ilgili yaşadıkları sorunları araştırılmıştır. Toplam 48 aday ile yürütülen bu çalışma kapsamındaki veriler problem çözmede çoklu temsilleri kullanma testi ve klinik mülakat ile toplanmıştır. Elde edilen verilere göre, adayların problemlerin çözüm sürecinde özellikle konuşma dili temsilini diğer temsil türlerine göre (cebirsel, grafiksel ve sayısal) daha yoğun kullandıkları belirlenmiştir. Bununla birlikte, özellikle problemi anlama aşamasında önemli işleve sahip olduğunu düşündükleri temsillerin kullanımında adayların probleme uygun temsil oluşturamama ve temsiller arasında geçiş yapamama gibi sorunlar yaşadıkları tespit edilmiştir
In this study, what kind of representations pre-service elementary mathematics teachers use in problem solving processes, and their problems that they had related to these representations were researched. The data within the scope of this study was obtained from total of 48 pre-service teachers, and were collected from the using multiple representation in problem solving test and clinical interviews. According to data obtained, the pre-service teachers were determined that using in particular verbal representations intensively rather than other representations (algebraic, graphical and numeric) in the problems solving process. However, the pre-service teachers who thought the usage of representations had important function particularly in the understanding the problem stage were determined that having problems like inability to create a representation to a problem, or inability to make translation between the representations
