(formerly The Montana Mathematics Enthusiast) An Eclectic Research Journal affiliated to: Montana Council of Teachers of Mathematics (MCTM) Psychology of Mathematics Education- North American Chapter(PMENA) & Dept of Mathematical Sciences- The University of Montana

Editor: Bharath Sriraman, The University of Montana, USA

Overview     Ordering     Editorial Board    


The Mathematics Enthusiast to feature NSF Math Science Partnership Projects:

The (Montana) Mathematics Enthusiast, edited by Bharath Sriraman has been selected by the National Science Foundation's Math and Science Partnership (MSP) program committee to assemble and publish a set of papers over the next two years to expand avenues for more MSP projects to share what they are learning about mathematics and science education through an internationally recognized peer-reviewed journal that is widely available.

Papers will be selected from the Learning Network Conference scheduled to take place on January 23-24, 2012, in Washington, DC. This conference features about 100 MSP projects, including large partnerships targeting science and/or mathematics teaching and learning in specific grade bands or disciplinary areas, institute partnerships focusing on developing teacher leadership, partnership incubator (or “Start”) projects focusing on learning about institutional partnership development, and research and evaluation projects studying and supporting MSP and similar work. The overarching goal of the MSP program, which was created by Congress in 2002, is to increase K-12 student achievement in STEM subjects through consequential partnerships between higher education and K-12 institutions, involving STEM faculty in deep and meaningful ways.

The Mathematics Enthusiast is an eclectic internationally circulated peer reviewed journal which focuses on mathematics content, mathematics education research, innovation, interdisciplinary issues and pedagogy. The journal is published by Information Age Publishing and the electronic version is hosted jointly by IAP and the Department of Mathematical Sciences- The University of Montana, and affiliated to the professional associations MCTM [Montana Council of Teachers of Mathematics] and PMENA [Psychology of Mathematics Education- North America].

Articles appearing in the journal address issues related to mathematical thinking, teaching and learning at all levels. The focus includes specific mathematics content and advances in that area accessible to readers, as well as political, social and cultural issues related to mathematics education. Journal articles cover a wide spectrum of topics such as mathematics content (including advanced mathematics), educational studies related to mathematics, and reports of innovative pedagogical practices with the hope of stimulating dialogue between pre-service and practicing teachers, university educators and mathematicians. The journal is interested in research based articles as well as historical, philosophical, political, cross-cultural and systems perspectives on mathematics content, its teaching and learning. The journal also includes a monograph series on special topics of interest to the community of readers The journal is accessed from 102+ countries and its readers include students of mathematics, future and practicing teachers, mathematicians, cognitive psychologists, critical theorists, mathematics/science educators, historians and philosophers of mathematics and science as well as those who pursue mathematics recreationally. The 40 member editorial board reflects this diversity. The journal exists to create a forum for argumentative and critical positions on mathematics education, and especially welcomes articles which challenge commonly held assumptions about the nature and purpose of mathematics and mathematics education. Reactions or commentaries on previously published articles are welcomed. Manuscripts are to be submitted in electronic format to the editor in APA style. The typical time period from submission to publication is 8-11 months. Please visit the journal website at
