The Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd) is the main provider of teacher education programmes in Hong Kong; the courses offered range from sub-degree, degree, to post- graduate levels. This study reported on a study which aimed to find out the beliefs about mathematics teaching held by a group of mathematics student teachers taking a Certificate in Education programme. The study made use of the Beliefs About Teaching Mathematics (BTM) Questionnaire developed by Van Zoest et al. (1994). The questionnaire was administered to a group of student teachers enrolled in the Mathematics Teaching Methodology Module of the HKIEdÑof which the author was the lecturer in chargeÑat the start of the semester. The paper will report on the findings and discuss the implications for designing a mathematics methodology course.
