Mobile devices (e.g., smartphones and tablets) are spreading globally, along with decreasing prices and increasing support utilities with the characteristics of availability, flexibility, portability, individuality, connectivity, and social interactivity. The rise of mobile devices/ technologies in school inspired educational researchers to introduce the term “mobile learning” to push the boundaries of traditional pedagogy. This study was a systematic review of 52 articles related to mobile learning in mathematics education in 2008-2021. It answered the questions about distribution, major research purposes, approaches, methods. The articles for review were chosen using a three-stage methodology: read, select criteria, and summarize. This review study of mobile learning presents findings, which highlighted gaps in existing literature on the topic and has provided insights, can become a platform and guidance for researchers, educators, and policy makers for future research.
