Abstract: 
Student teachers in Australia and Singapore were asked to solve a
one-step ratio problem and to complete open sentences about the nature
of mathematics and mathematics pedagogy. The purpose of this paper is
to investigate the similarities and differences in proportional
reasoning of the student teachers in Australia and Singapore through
the approaches and strategies they used in solving the ratio problem.
From their responses to the open sentences, this paper presents also
the differences and similarities between the two country groups in
their beliefs about the nature of mathematics and how mathematics is
learned and taught. The relationships between beliefs about mathematics
and variables in solving the ratio problem are discussed with
particular reference to the curriculum and pedagogical contexts in
Australia and Singapore.
