Abstract

In this study, we examined non-traditional pathway preservice teachers’ attitudes towards mathematics to inform decision-making on designing the course and the units related to mathematics and how to support the teachers in transitioning smoothly into higher education programs. We adopted a mixed design approach to document teachers’ attitudes towards mathematics. Results show that the teachers revealed positive attitudes towards their mathematical self-ability of the subject, the enjoyment of mathematics, and the utility of the subject.
