**Sažetak**

The papers in the Monograph addressed different topics related to teaching and learning processes of mathematics which are of great interest to both students and prospective teachers. Some papers opened new questions for research, some showed examples of good practice and others provided more information for the earlier findings. All papers portray the complex role of mathematics education: mathematics education is a science but also a profession. Research in mathematics education is needed to investigate various phenomena, but the research has also the responsibility to inform practitioners of its findings. Mathematics teachers are a critical component in this process. Their collaboration with the researchers is necessary to achieve the shift from the traditional to contemporary teaching mathematics. The Monograph consists of six chapters. In the first chapter of the Monograph the author studied the relation between the surface approach and the strategic approach on the learning outcome. In the second chapter the authors examined the topic of geometric character. They discussed the topic of the importance of the spatial reasoning, as well as the effect of computer technology on geometry education. An emphasis was put on the fact that the strong links between geometry and technology are important because geometry’s need for proficiency in many technical fields exceeds the traditional Euclidean space geometry. In the third chapter the authors argued that teachers’ beliefs about teaching and learning mathematics were significant in the utilization of a particular resource. They examined teachers’ classroom practice and beliefs about mathematics, mathematics education, teaching mathematics and using textbooks as curriculum resources. The importance of the application of ICT in teaching mathematics was discussed in the fourth chapter. The impact of using proposed computer guided discovery learning model on students’ conceptual and procedural knowledge in mathematics was investigated. In the fifth chapter the author examined whether there was a connection between the attitudes towards mathematics and the performance on mathematics exams. In the last chapter of the Monograph the authors suggested some useful approaches to teaching mathematics.
