**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:

*First*, developing mathematics learning integrated with values or character. This scope deals with researches to explore mathematics learning from affective if we refer to the view of Markku. S. Hanula or socio-cultural perspective from the works of Alan J. Bishop and Third Wave Project. *Second*, developing mathematics learning based on the constructivist perspective. Learning mathematics is not the transfer of knowledge but the construction of knowledge. This scope 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 problem solving, reasoning and proof, representations, connections, communications, and high order thinking. *Third*, the development of technological-based mathematics learning tools and its use in mathematics classroom. The product of technology can be employed to support mathematics learning. Thus, researches on the development of mathematics learning tools using technology especially digital technology and its practices in mathematics classrooms are important part of journal scopes. *Fourth*, the development of pedagogical content knowledge for in-service and prospective mathematics teachers. This scope includes all attempts to prepare and support prospective mathematics teachers on 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.

**B. Methods **← 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

a. Figures

The figures must be arranged as example below

**Figure**** 1**. Attached figure in article

b. Graphs

The graphs must be like the following format

**Graph 1. **Attached graph format

2. Equations

The equations must use *equation feature* in **Microsoft Word**, not an image. The equation should be numbered as follows

3. Tables

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
