ab: Summary: The importance of beliefs for the teaching and learning of
mathematics is widely recognized among mathematics educators. In this
special issue, we explicitly address what we call “beliefs and
beyond” to indicate the larger field surrounding beliefs in
mathematics education. This is done to broaden the discussion to
related concepts (which may not originate in mathematics education) and
to consider the interconnectedness of concepts. In particular, we
present some new developments at the conceptual level, address
different approaches to investigate beliefs, highlight the role of
student beliefs in problem-solving activities, and discuss teacher
beliefs and their significance for professional development. One
specific intention is to consider expertise from colleagues in the
fields of educational research and psychology, side by side with
perspectives provided by researchers from mathematics education.
