This study explores the practice of mathematics teaching and learning in the semester system in Nepal. Three teachers and six students of Master of Education from the Faculty of Education, Tribhuvan University (TU) were selected purposively for the interview. In addition, 21 students were also selected for focused group discussion (FGD), and classroom observation and FGD were used to collect information from the participants in the study. Thematic analysis is used in the study. It is concluded that the semester system at TU, Central Department of Education, particularly in mathematics, has a radical shift in pedagogical practices. There is the provision of supportive internal and external evaluation systems to promote multiple skills and knowledge in mathematics or the holistic development of learners. The assessments were to encourage and motivate the students in learning. The study supported to enhance the weakness of teaching-learning activities in the semester system. It is the supportive document for effective teaching-learning in the semester system for Nepal.
