The purpose of this research is to determine the expectation of pre-service primary teachers for a teaching of mathematics book. The study was conducted with 41 pre-service teachers. The research was defined as a case study from descriptive qualitative research designs. Pre-service teachers were asked about the qualities they thought of a book of teaching of mathematics to be prepared for primary school 1th-4th grades should have, and a text expressing their thoughts was made them write. The collected data were analyzed by the content analysis method. According to the results, pre-service teachers expect that teaching of mathematics book meets the needs both during their undergraduate education and throughout their teaching life. They stated that the language of the book should be removed as far as possible from the academic language. Also, regarding the mathematical content of the book, it is stated that the practices must be rich in terms of activities, instead of complicated mathematical notations, there should be expressions that can be easily understood, the clearest explanation of mathematical concepts should be included in the book. They also pointed out the book including what might be the misconceptions about mathematical concepts or what might be the misconceptions about the topic would be useful for them in the point of what they should pay attention to when teaching them. They also stated that there should be a lot of material samples for teaching each subject about mathematical content.
