RDM - Recherches en Didactique des Mathématiques

Presentation of the journal

Editorial orientation


Recherches en Didactique des Mathématiques is a research journal that publishes original articles addressing questions drawn from the teaching, learning, or dissemination of mathematics in or outside school contexts. It addresses an audience composed principally of researchers in the didactics of mathematics, but also of teachers, professional mathematicians, teacher educators, and professional developers.

Most of the articles make reference to, and indeed contribute to developing, standard theoretical frameworks in the didactics of mathematics. Nevertheless, certain articles can make principal reference to less common frameworks because they are culturally more distant or come from related disciplinary fields. The articles can be published in English, Spanish, or French and must include an abstract in each of the three languages.

The articles, which vary in length, can address one or more of the following points :

- determination of relevant facts of didactic communication ;
- analysis of instructional situations ;
- analysis of pupils’ learning processes and products ;
- epistemological and psychological studies of the mathematical content and concepts connected with characteristics of the situations in which they function and where they are constituted ;
- research methodology : observation, video recordings, questionnaires, examinations, and so forth ;
- debates on problematics, the determination of their specific objects, and the theories that underlie them.
