Notes

  1. 1.

    CERME’s ‘RUME’ stands for research on university mathematics education, whereas IJRUME’s ‘U’ stands for undergraduate. I use the abbreviation in CERME’s sense.

  2. 2.

    Blum et al. (2019) root their volume in the research traditions of France, the Netherland, Italy, and German-speaking countries. The cases of Scandinavian countries, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and collaborative projects that go beyond Europe, are also discussed.

  3. 3.

    The speculator in me immediately wonders whether this might relate to the “special character” of the UME TWG: it has a sizable core of European researchers, but it has also been welcoming to scholars coming from other regions and research traditions.
