Abstract: 
Teaching for conceptual understanding is one aim of the problem solving curriculum. The first part of the article describes a study that aimed to identify potential factors that may prevent pre-service primary school teachers from teaching the topic of volume for conceptual understanding. The study involved ninety-five non-graduate pre-service teachers. Their responses to a paper-and-pencil instrument were used to identify possible obstacles to teaching for conceptual understanding. The possession of a narrow range of experiences related
to a concept, the possession of procedural knowledge based upon weak conceptual
knowledge and the reluctance to form mental representation of a concept emerged
as possible obstacles. The second part suggests ways to facilitate pre-service
teachers teaching the topic of volume for conceptual understanding.
