Description In our research we studied the way pupils prepared several word problems and the way prospective primary school teachers subjectively perceived this process. The paper presents outcomes of this research. We wanted to investigate whether and how prospective primary school teachers are able to analyze the way pupils constructed the word problems and to assess the significance of such composition in primary mathematics education. The author considers this competence to be one of the factors that contribute to the formation of the professional identity of the prospective teacher. As a research method, the analysis of authentic statements of prospective teachers expressing their expectations was used. This analysis was complemented by the authentic problems worded by the pupils.
