Mathematics Magazine is a refereed bimonthly publication of the Mathematical Association of America. Its intended audience is teachers of collegiate mathematics, especially at the junior/senior level, and their students. It is explicitly a journal of mathematics rather than pedagogy. Rather than articles in the terse "theorem-proof" style of research journals, it seeks articles which provide a context for the mathematics they deliver, with examples, applications, illustrations, and historical background.[2] Paid circulation in 2008 was 9,500 and total circulation was 10,000.[3]

Mathematics Magazine is a continuation of Mathematics News Letter (1926-1934) and National Mathematics Magazine (1934-1945.)[4] Doris Schattschneider became the first female editor of Mathematics Magazine in 1981. [5][6]

The MAA gives the Carl B. Allendoerfer Awards annually "for articles of expository excellence" published in Mathematics Magazine.[7]
