A. Introduction ← 11.5pts, Calibri bold
(11 pts Calibri; space 1.125)
Bετα: Jurnal Tadris Matematika (http://jurnalbeta.ac.id) is a scientific, peer-reviewed, and open access journal which publishes scholarly articles in mathematics education field. The articles must be 12-20 pages including bibliography and appendix (if any). The articles published can be research articles (first priority) and library research (limited number). The scope of the published articles will be as follows:
1) Affects and values in mathematics teaching and learning
The scope deals with a basic question, how mathematics-related affects and values contribute to the teaching and learning of mathematics?
The affects in mathematics education can be various topics such as beliefs, attitudes, emotions, self-efficacy, confidence, motivations, identity, mathematics anxiety and characters. 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. The values in mathematics education 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. The related topics are pedagogical values, values alignment, values in teaching and learning mathematics, and mathematics well-being.
2) 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, ethnomathematics, etc.
3) The development of mathematics teachers (pre-service and in-service) competencies
The scope is devoted to any researches to support pre-service and/or in-service mathematics teachers develop pedagogical values, pedagogical identities, and technological/pedagogical content knowledge.
The introduction must cover three crucial points, i.e. the background of research or research problems, gap analysis, and the statement of research purposes (at the end of introduction). Research problems draw from thorough analysis of prior researches or deep preliminary researches (state of the art). The gap analysis deals with the importance, the position and the distinction of the current research toward prior relevant researches. The introduction ends with the statement of research purposes which refer to research problems and gap analysis. The explanations which do not closely link to research purposes or topics must not be included to have effective introduction. In this journal article, there is no sub chapter for theoretical review as in research report document. It is addressed in the form of state of the art to reveal the originality of the current research.
← 11.5pts, Calibri bold
(11pts Calibri; space 1.125)
This part addresses the methods employed in the research. It includes types of research (classroom action research, design research, etc.), research subjects, research instruments (developed by the researcher/s or adapt the existing instrument), data sources, data collections, and data analysis.
Numbering format in this journal article should be as follows:
1. Figures and graphs
The figures must be arranged as example below
Figure 1. Attached figure in article
The graphs must be like the following format
Graph 1. Attached graph format
The equations must use equation feature in Microsoft Word, not an image. The equation should be numbered as follows
The tables must be written in space 1 and 10,5 pts. The table format used in this journal article is as below
C. Findings and Discussion ← 11.5pts, Calibri bold
(11pts Calibri; space 1.125)
Findings and discussion address the findings in current research and the discussion about the findings scientifically. The author/s should write the findings which are supported by reasonable data. The discussion should consider questions; What are the findings? Why the findings are like that? The answers to the questions should be scientific, not just descriptive. In addition, the discussion of the findings must compare to prior relevant researches. This part ends with suggestions for further research or implications for mathematics learning theoretically or empirically.
D. Conclusion ← 11.5pts, Calibri bold
(11pts Calibri; space 1.125)
Conclusion answers the research hypothesis or purposes. It is not the replication of findings and discussion but a summary of the findings which refer to research purposes. Conclusion is written in the form of descriptive paragraph (one paragraph is enough), not numbering.
Acknowledgment ← 11.5pts, Calibri bold
(11pts Calibri; space 1.125)
Acknowledgment is optional. The author/s is encouraged to acknowledge any parties that give contribution to the research. It is not same as dedication chapter in thesis/dissertation.
Bibliography ← 11.5pts, Calibri bold
(10.5 pts, Calibri, space 1)
Guideline for bibliography in Bετα: Jurnal Tadris Matematika is as follows:
- Bibliography must be the same as citations
- Minimum 10 references for each article, 80% of them are primary references such as journal articles, conference proceedings, and thesis/dissertation.
- The references must be last 10 years
- The authors are highly encouraged to use reference manager such as Mendeley, Zotero, EndNote, and others
- The bibliography applies APA 6th Edition (American Psychological Association). Further read about APA is available here
