Abstract: This article first describes the nature of mathematics as an intellectual domain and how several general theoretical perspectives in educational psychology as well as mathematics-specific theories have influenced and still influence research on mathematics education. Subsequently, we review the current research-based views on (1) mathematical competence, (2)learning mathematics, and (3) teaching mathematics.
