Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically by using the SIGMA: Jurnal Pendidikan Matematika online submission procedure. The corresponding author should also provide a statement that the manuscript is not concurrently being under consideration for publication elsewhere. The Editors will ignore submissions that do not follow these procedures.

Structure of the manuscripts

  1. Title. The title should be clear and informative, and not more than 14 words.
