**Sažetak**

Educational researchers widely recognize the importance of the development of students’ metacognitive strategies and problem solving skills in order to improve their mathematics achievement. However, the time dedicated to the study and development of preservice mathematics teachers’ problem solving skills is minimal. The aim of this research is to provide the insight into the metacognitive behaviour of six preservice mathematics teachers, attending graduate teacher training courses at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Rijeka, while solving nonroutine geometry problems. This study was designed as a multiple case study, a qualitative research method. We observed some weaknesses in students’ mathematical knowledge with particular focus on how they relate and transfer their conceptual and procedural knowledge to unfamiliar problem situations. Our intention was to explore problem solving process experienced by preservice teachers faced with nonroutine geometry problems, working individually within dynamic geometry environment (GeoGebra) or paper-pencil environment, and how the use of dynamic geometry software can influence on participant’s decision- making, reflections and problem solving process.
