Abstrakt: Infinity is an important concept in mathematics, which students find difficult to learn. This paper will report Finnish elementary teacher students’ understanding of density at the beginning of their studies and the development of that understanding during a mathematics methods course. The results show that even quite limited teaching can initiate significant improvement. Moreover, students can make progress even if their initial level of performance is low. Yet, only 60 % of elementary education students reach satisfactory content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge by the end of the course.
