NCTM Accepting Applications for Grants to Engage Middle School Students in Mathematics


The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is accepting applications for Engaging Students in Learning Mathematics grants for teachers in grades 6-8.

The purpose of this grant is to incorporate middle-school classroom materials or lessons that actively engage students in tasks and experiences, with the goal of deepening their content knowledge. For 2015-16, grants of up to $3,000 will be awarded to persons currently teaching mathematics in grades 6-8. Materials may be in the form of books, visual displays, slide shows, videotapes, or other appropriate media.

To be eligible, applicants must be current (on or before October 15, 2014) full individual or e-members of NCTM or teach at a school with a current (on or before October 15, 2014) NCTM Pre-K-8 school membership and currently teach mathematics in grades 6-8 at least 50 percent of the school day. Activities are to be completed between June 1, 2015, and May 31, 2016. Past recipients of this grant are ineligible to re-apply for the grant.
