Mathematics education is arguably the most internationalized subject in higher education. This is reflected in the number of international conferences, exchanges and publications in the field. While a number of publications have addressed the internationalization of mathematics education theory and research, the term globalization is perhaps less familiar in the mathematics education literature. This chapter presents a theoretical construct towards the study of globalization and internationalization in mathematics education and identifies some key issues under each construct and that may require further discussion and research. These issues are illustrated by three case studies from Australia, East and Southeast Asia and Latin America. The chapter concludes by a discussion of global collaboration in mathematics education.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
