Abstract
We describe recent developments in research on mathematical practice and cognition and outline the nine contributions in this special issue of topiCS. We divide these contributions into those that address (a) mathematical reasoning: patterns, levels, and evaluation; (b) mathematical concepts: evolution and meaning; and (c) the number concept: representation and processing
Keywords Mathematical reasoning  Mathematical practice and cognition  The number concept  Philosophy of mathematical practice  Cognitive science of mathematics  Mathematical concepts
