Summary: The purpose of this study is to investigate what kinds of changes have occurred in Finnish mathematics teachers’ beliefs during 1987‒2012. The data was collected through a Likert scale questionnaire in years 1987 and 2012, and the analysis concentrates on the comparison between these studies.
