Abstract [en]

Many frameworks for teacher knowledge describe the work of a mathematics teacher as highly complex and therefore requires specialized competences (e.g. Rowland & Ruthven, 2011). At the same time, countries around the world have difficulties in recruiting highly qualified students to teacher education. Furthermore, teacher educators often express that prospective teachers question the amount and level of mathematics that they have to learn. Research on views about teaching often focuses on teachers’ views (Philipp, 2007). Less is known about students’ views about working as a teacher and how those might influence their choice of a profession. The focus of this study is on the views that students have on mathematical challenges associated with the work of a mathematics teacher, when compared to other occupations.
