About the Journal
The Journal of Mathematics in Teaching and Learning (JMTL) is devoted to research that seeks to improve the teaching and learning and develop teaching methods that better enable mathematics students to learn. The journal covers all stages of the professional development of mathematics in teaching and learning. It serves as a forum for examining institutional, societal, and cultural influences that impact on teachers' learning and teaching and ultimately their students’ learning.
Papers are published in one of two JMTL sections. Research and library papers reflect the main topics of the journal and go beyond local or national interest. Mathematics Teacher and students Around the World focuses on programs and issues of national significance that may be of wider interest or influence. Reader Commentary consists of short contributions that may offer a response to a published paper or develop an idea. The journal also publishes critiques of relevant reports and books.
