TME Online: The Mathematics Educator


The Mathematics Educator (TME) is a student-produced journal published semiannually by the Mathematics Education Student Association (MESA) in the Department of Mathematics Education at the University of Georgia. MESA is a student affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).

TME publishes a variety of types of manuscripts from students and other professionals in mathematics education, including:

  • reports of research (including experiments, case studies, surveys, philosophical studies, and historical studies), curriculum projects, or classroom experiences
  • commentaries on issues pertaining to research, classroom experiences, or public policies in mathematics education
  • literature reviews
  • theoretical analyses
  • critiques of general articles, research reports, books, or software
  • mathematical problems
  • translations of articles previously published in other languages
  • abstracts of or entire articles that have been published in journals or proceedings that may not be easily available
