Abstract (2. Language): 
The purpose of the present study is to investigate in what ways engagement with spatial visualization problem solving activities helps pre-service mathematics teachers in solving mental rotation problems. To achieve this purpose, a case study is conducted and the case of the study is the group of five pre-service mathematics teachers studying in a public university in Ankara. Spatial Ability Test (SAT) and task-based interviews are used as data collecting instruments. The results of the study show that participants use different ways in solving mental rotation problems; mentally rotating the figure or comparing the relative positions or patterns of the parts of the given figure. Additionally, solving spatial problems help participants in exploring, practicing or shifting their ways of solving problems to cope with the difficulties in solving spatial visualization problems requiring mental rotation accurately and practically.

Bu çalışmanın amacı uzamsal görselleştirme problemleri çözme etkinliklerinin öğretmen adaylarının zihinsel döndürme problemleri çözmelerine nasıl yardımcı olduğunu araştırmaktır. Bu amaçla bir durum çalışması yapılmıştır ve çalışmada incelenen durum Ankara’da bir devlet üniversitesinde eğitim gören matematik öğretmen adaylarıdır. Veri toplama araçları olarak Uzamsal Yetenek Testi (SAT) ve görev temelli görüşmeler kullanılmıştır. Çalışmanın bulguları göstermiştir ki katılımcılar zihinsel döndürme problemleri çözerken farklı yollar kullanmışlardır; verilen şekli zihinde döndürme veya verilen şeklin parçalarının konumlarını veya desenlerini karşılaştırma. Buna ek olarak, uzamsal görselleştirme problemleri çözmek katılımcıların çözüm yollarını keşfetmelerini, değiştirmelerini veya pratik yapmalarını sağlayarak zihinsel döndürme problemlerini doğru ve pratik bir biçimde çözerken karşılaştıkları zorlukları aşmalarına yardımcı olmuştur.
