This study investigated secondary school mathematics teachers’ beliefs about knowledge of teaching and its impact on their teaching practices. Two teachers participated in the study. Data were collected through an interview and classroom observations. The results indicated that the teachers’ beliefs about the goal of mathematics education and about the importance of teachers’ understanding the way students think about certain mathematics subjects had impact on their teaching practices. However, the teachers’ teaching practices were also affected by the students.
