PRIMUS publishes lively and engaging articles for a readership comprised primarily of practitioners. The journal’s focus is on pedagogical initiatives in college-level mathematics, mathematics education, and elementary statistics ranging in scale of application from individual students and courses to curricula and entire programs.

Research in Collegiate Mathematics Education We invite papers reporting on research that addresses any and all aspects of collegiate mathematics education. Research may focus on learning within particular mathematical domains. It may be concerned with more general cognitive processes such as problem solving, skill acquisition, conceptual development, mathematical creativity, cognitive styles, transition to collegiate mathematics, etc. Research reports may deal with issues associated with variations in teaching methods, classroom or laboratory contexts, or discourse patterns.

The Mathematics Educator strives to provide a forum for collaboration of mathematics educators at varying levels of professional experience. Its purpose is to promote the interchange of ideas among the mathematics education community, locally, nationally, and internationally and to present a variety of viewpoints on a broad spectrum of issues related to mathematics education.
