Abstract: 
This paper reports on an exploratory study that was conducted to examine
the types of heuristics selected by twenty-five prospective mathematics
teachers when they solved four mathematical problems during a one-hour
written test. The findings revealed that the prospective teachers were able
to apply the appropriate heuristics to solve successfully three of the four
problems given. They were, however, less successful on the problem that
required logical deduction. Some of them even used multiple heuristics to
solve the problems.
