Focus and Scope

Journal of Research and Advances in Mathematics Education (JRAMathEdu) is an electronic international journal that aims to disseminate significant and innovative scholarly studies that are of value to the national and international research communities. The Journal welcomes research articles focusing on the following topics (but not limited):

Digital Technology in Mathematics Education

Digital technology is essential in teaching and learning mathematics to understand the basic concept and the way of problem-solving technique, especially in the 21st century (NCTM, 2008).  However, bringing digital technology to the mathematics classroom is a big challenge for teachers and students. For this reason, JRAMathEdu is focusing on publishing studies for promoting digital technology in mathematics learning such as social media, digital games, graphing calculators, computer algebra system (CAS), dynamic mathematics software (DMS), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), or other technology devices and software.

Mathematics Teachers Professional Development

Teacher quality is the single most important school variable influencing student achievement (OECD, 2005).  In the current era, the challenge of teachers in the learning process is not only how to have qualified content knowledge and pedagogy, but also how teachers can adapt to the very rapid advances in the disruption era. Therefore, the development of teacher’s competencies, especially in mathematics, it cannot be negotiated. For this reason, JRAMathEdu is focusing on publishing the studies in both pre-and in-service mathematics teachers’ knowledge, beliefs, and tools or strategies for supporting mathematics teacher learning.

Special Needs in Mathematics Education

Excellence in mathematics education requires equity—high expectations and strong support for all students (NCTM, 2000). They must have a solid grounding in mathematics to function effectively in their life (Ball, Ferrini-Mundy, Kilpatrick, Milgram, Schmid, & Schaar, 2005). However, the paradigm of mathematics learning has not provided proper attention to students with special needs, for instance in the mathematics curriculum, tools and learning resources, and teachers' competence. For this reason, JRAMathEdu is focusing on publishing the studies for supporting the quality of mathematics learning and developing the mathematics ability for students with special needs.

Educational Psychology in Mathematics Education

Psychology has a vital role to play in mathematics education. Educational psychology involves the study of how people learn, including topics such as student abilities, the instructional process, and individual differences in learning. Even though numerous researches have been discussed these topics, however, the rapid changes in human life bringing a challenge in education, without exception in mathematics education. For this reason, JRAMathEdu is focusing on publishing the studies in all aspects of educational psychology such as the individual differences in ability, attitude, perception, motivation, learning, thinking, problem-solving, and group interactional processes.


Ethnomathematics is the study of the relationship between mathematics and culture (D’Ambrosio, 1999). It is generally understood that every community has a distinctive culture that is different from one another. Understanding mathematics through culture will bring mathematics closer to human life. For this reason, JRAMathEdu is focusing on publishing the studies in the connecting culture to support mathematics learning and how mathematical concepts are present in the culture.
