Introduction

Mathematics education is becoming more dedicated to contents and pedagogy based stream of education. It is extending towards new perspectives with influences from the different disciplines as diverse as psychology, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, feminism and mathematical sciences.

The distinction between mathematics and mathematics education lies on the nature of enquiry is made by mathematicians and mathematics education researchers. Mathematicians established the pattern, structure and theory in the physical world and the mental world of forms, relationships, and try to convince others that they too can see the same things whereas Mathematics Education researchers established pattern and structure in the socio-psychological behaviour of students and the teachers of mathematics explore whether the phenomenon directs the future actions, and try to provide frameworks for enabling others to notice the same as well.

With the implementation of NESP in 1971, the college of education at Tribhuvan University was restructured in 1972. Under the Institute of Education, Mathematics Instruction Committee at Kirtipur conducted different academic programmes with training for in-service and pre-service mathematics teachers of different levels of schools. In 1976 two years M.Ed. programme of mathematics education specialization courses of 400 marks was started. The Nepali Mathematical Science Report was published with the initiation of the Mathematics Instruction Committee. Nowadays it conducted M.Ed. Programme with semester systems.

In this way, the Department of Mathematics Education is established by crossing various ups and downs. And ICT Education is conducted in this department in 2071.Past Faculties/Department of Mathematics Education
