Öz Bu çalışmanın amacı öğretim elemanlarının ispatın önemine yönelik görüşlerini incelemektir. Bir eğitim fakültesinde ispat temelli matematik dersleri veren 7 öğretim elemanını ile mülakat yapılmıştır. İspatın önemine yönelik görüşlerin analizi sonucunda 25 kategori oluşmuş ve bu kategoriler 5 tema altında toplanmıştır. İlk mülakatın analizi ile oluşturulan sıralama anketi ile öğretim elemanlarının bu temaları kendilerine göre önem sırasına göre sıralamaları istenmiştir. Sonuç olarak, öğretim elemanlarının ispatları önemli bulmasında en etkili gerekçenin, ispatın öğrencilerin düşünme becerilerine katkı yaptığını düşünmeleri olduğu söylenebilir. Bu temayı sırasıyla, “teoremin/konunun öğrenilmesine katkı”, “matematiğin tanıtılmasına katkı”, “duyuşsal özelliklere katkı” ve son olarak “uygulamaya katkı” temaları takip etmektedir. İspatın önemine yönelik oluşan kategoriler çoğunlukla literatürdeki görüşlere paralellik göstermekle birlikte ispatın öğrenciye güven vermesi ve heyecan duymaya sebep olması gibi farklı görüşlerin de ortaya çıktığı görülmüştür.
