ABSTRACT
The number of mathematics and other major subjects to be taught at the Primary School and Kindergarten Teacher Training Colleges in Romania has decreased significantly since the implementation of the Bologna process in the higher education system. There are now only 14 weeks in which students could acquire all the knowledge that is necessary for them to be able to teach mathematics at an appropriate level. The present paper analyses the results of a comparative research done with the regular and distance learning third year students.
