The use of cases as a pedagogical tool in teacher education is seen as one way of bringing practice closer to theory. This study describes the use of cases in a university course for secondary school prospective mathematics teachers. The study investigates participants’ views of cases taken from different sources and presented in different situations. In general, participants felt that the use of cases had an impact on their understanding of common mathematical errors but that cases based on mistakes they had themselves made during homework assignments were most meaningful.
