This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the TFM 2009, held in Eindhoven, The Netherlands in November 2009. The 10 revised full papers presented together with an abstracts of invited talk were carefully reviewed and selected from 19 submissions. The papers presented explore the experiences of teaching FMs, both successful and unsuccessful, educational resources including the use of books, case studies and the internet, the education of weak and mathphobic students, the integration, or otherwise, of FMs into the curriculum, including, contributions to the definition of a Formal Methods Body of Knowledge (FMBOK), the advantages of FM-trained graduates in the workplace, changing attitudes towards FMs in students, academic staff and practitioners and the necessary mathematical background.
