ab: Summary: This paper presents the outcomes of the work of the ICME 13 Survey
Team on ’Conceptualisation and the role of competencies, knowing and
knowledge in mathematics education research’. It surveys a variety of
historical and contemporary views and conceptualisations of what it
means to master mathematics, focusing on notions such as mathematical
competence and competencies, mathematical proficiency, and mathematical
practices, amongst others. The paper provides theoretical analyses of
these notions ‒ under the generic heading of mathematical
competencies ‒ and gives an overview of selected research on and by
means of them. Furthermore, an account of the introduction and
implementation of competency notions in the curricula in various
countries and regions is given, and pertinent issues are reviewed. The
paper is concluded with a set of reflections on current trends and
challenges concerning mathematical competencies.
