MESC Classification

The Mathematics Education Subject Classification (MESC) was compiled by the Editorial Office of MathEduc with the kind support of numerous experts. It is reflected in the MSC2010 scheme in the area 97 – Mathematics education.

The MESC scheme consists of 16 main areas classified with two digits refined into over 1000 three-digit classifications. It serves as a compass to keep being informed about the developments in their areas of interest.

Searching the ever growing number of mathematical publications would not be possible without the help of this well organized scheme. Nearly all publications are classified according to this widely accepted tool.

Last digit

The last digit refers to the educational level:
0: General
1: pre-school education
2: primary level school education
3: lower and middle secondary level school education
4: higher secondary school education
5: universities, colleges
6: special schools
7: vocational schools
8: colleges of further education, correspondence schools, popular education
9: teacher training
