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.

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. If you would like to join us as a member, please contact PME via its Administrative Manager.

PME gathers once a year to share our work and interests at our Annual PME Conference. For more information about the conference, please refer to the conference page.
