Welcome to IGPME

PME is an international group of mathematics educators and researchers who gather once a year to share our work and interests at our Annual Conference. The next Annual Conference will take place in Umeå, Sweden from July 3 to 8 in 2018

PME welcomes all who are interested in how students learn mathematics, how teachers teach mathematics, and how mathematicians, teachers and students do mathematics. Please feel free to explore this website, read the most recent PME Newsletter, and, participate in one of our Forums. If you have questions, you can send an e-mail to our Administrative Manager.

The International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education (PME), is a group of researchers, established in 1976 at the International Congress on Mathematics Education (ICME3) in Karlsruhe, Germany. The aims of the organization are:

  1. to promote international contacts and exchange of scientific information in the field of mathematical education;
  2. to promote and stimulate interdisciplinary research in the aforesaid area; and
  3. to further a deeper and more correct understanding of the psychology and other aspects of teaching and learning mathematics and the implications thereof.
