The scope pertains to the ideas that teaching and learning mathematics are not only about the mathematics itself but also its connection to a broader context of our life. For example, values in mathematics education which rooted in the work of Alan J Bishop, Mathematics Enculturation and followed by many research projects such as VAMP (Values and Mathematics Projects), VIMT (Values in Mathematics Teaching), WiFi (What I Find Important), and Third Wave Project.
(2) Affects in mathematics teaching and learning
The scope deals with a basic question, how mathematics-related affects contribute to the teaching and learning of mathematics?
The affects in mathematics education can be various topics such as beliefs, emotions, self-efficacy, confidence, motivations, identity, mathematics anxiety. The researches (ideas of research) on related topics can be traced to the works of Markku S. Hannula, CERME Proceedings, ICME Proceedings and published books in Springer or other publishers.
(3) The development of students mathematics literacy
This scope answer the question, how mathematics learning develop students mathematics literacy?
It refers to researches on the teachers' effort from primary until undergraduate to support and enhance students' roles and engagement in constructing mathematics knowledge and skills. It is not only about the achievement of students but also the process of learning which develop character, values, attitudes, problem-solving, reasoning and proof, representations, connections, communications, and high order thinking. The teachers' effort can be in the form of developing mathematics tasks, learning materials, the use of digital technologies, etc.
(4) The development of mathematics teachers (pre-service and in-service) competencies

Beta: Jurnal Tadris Matematika was firstly published as printing version in 2008. Its initial scope was mathematics and mathematics education. In 2016, it shifted to mathematics education (See Aims & Scope) and the online version was available at http://ejurnal.iainmataram.ac.id/index.php/beta. When the journal started its online journey, one of the challenges is to bring past issues online. However, some early articles (Vol.1-Vol. 3 No.1) could not be found for technical reasons.
Articles in Vol.9 No.1 Mei 2016 were processed (submitted, reviewed, copyedited, layout, proofread and published) through OJS workflow. Due to the technical errors of OJS installation which hamper the editorial process and open access, we decided to migrate the journal website to the newer version of OJS (OJS 2.x.x to OJS 3.x.x) and deleted the old website. This migration had some consequences regarding the article metadata and editorial history since the code and database structure of OJS 2.x.x is rather different from OJS 3.x.x. For example, the articles in Vol.9 No.1 Mei 2016 were published in May 2016 then migrated to the new journal website (http://jurnalbeta.ac.id) in October 2016 using Quick Plugin Submit. In this case, the editorial histories especially published dates follow the current submission. There is also a change on article template starting from Vol. 9 No.1 Mei 2016. The previous template is considered 'crowded' in header and footer.
