Recent comparative studies in mathematics education indicate that teachers’ beliefs about teaching and learning are culturally located. In addition, the notion of mathematical problem solving has evolved and is perceived differently in different educational systems around the world. In this talk, I present some findings from my ongoing PhD project, which investigates the cultural similarities and differences of prospective elementary teachers’ beliefs related to mathematical problem solving in Cyprus and England. In particular, here, participants’ beliefs about the nature of mathematical problems, about the nature of problem solving, and about explicit pedagogic practice are presented.
