Özet

The purpose of this study is to determine the prospective teachers' self-efficacy beliefs about mathematical literacy, and examine these beliefs in terms of some variables. The survey was conducted among 140 prospective mathematics and physics teachers. Data is collected by personal information forms developed by the researchers and "Mathematics Literacy Self-Efficacy Scale" which was developed by Ozgen and Bindak (2008). Findings show that prospective teachers' self-efficacy beliefs about mathematical literacy are below the average. Although physics prospective teachers' self-efficacy beliefs about mathematical literacy are higher than mathematics prospective teachers the difference is not statistically significant.
