The tension between the general and the specific in an international mathematics teacher education

  • Dina Tirosh
The Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education (JMTE) is widely acknowledged as truly, an international journal: Articles are written by authors from different continents and nations, religious and racial, portraying a range of realities. JMTE strives to publish articles that are relevant to mathematics educators (researchers and practitioners) around the globe, working in different, social and cultural contexts. The common ground is that mathematics educators, whenever they are, are committed to improve the learning and teaching of mathematics. With this aim in mind, mathematics educators are constantly in quest for various types of articles, including those that

  • suggest innovative instructional practices;

  • describe qualitative and quantitative tools to assess the impact of mathematics teacher education; and
