This article presents a research that aimed to promote understanding of the teaching of fractions via problem solving for future Pedagogy teachers. After a training held at the beginning of the Mathematics Teaching Methodology course, we applied a situation and, at the end of the discipline, another situation, which the 25 undergraduate should provide explanations of how they lead the teaching of fractions in the approach to problem solving. To analyze these explanations, four categories were prepared, characterized as reference aspects in teaching. The results showed that, initially, 36% had classroom practices that included these four aspects, and in the end, this percentage increased to only 44%. In addition to that, by the end, 40% did not propose the problem as a starting point. We conclude that, despite the training provided, these aspects were poorly understood by the participants, especially when proposing the problem as a starting point.
