The present work offers a characterization of the development of mathematics education, based on scientometric indicators. The study analyzes 5633 documents registered in the Scopus database which are all related to research in mathematics education. The main results show an exponential increase on the scientific productivity, a tendency to increase collaborative work over individual work, a greater impact per index of the cited references during the last two decades, a high level of international collaboration, a certain concentration of the publications on a reduced group of investigators in some international impact journals, and the existence of 17 invisible colleagues that represent scientific communities with common research interests.
