This study aims at investigating values in mathematics education portrayed by elementary student teachers. Data were gathered from 401 elementary student teachers at two public universities in Turkey. The results of the study showed that overall student teachers had positive mathematics education values. They recognized that the theoretical nature of mathematics apart from its relations to daily life would be meaningless. However, they held negative mathematics education values regarding conceptual learning of mathematics. They also recognized how important it was to emphasize the affective and cognitive outcomes in mathematics programs. The findings showed that no significant differences between student teachers' mathematics education values regarding gender and year spent in the program. However, significant differences were found in theory emphasis mathematics teaching favoring female student teachers.
