NCTM Accepting Applications for Grants to Engage 6-8 Grade Students in Mathematics

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

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

To be eligible, applicants must have a current NCTM membership (or teach at a school with active NCTM membership) and teach mathematics in grades 6-8 at least 50 percent of the school day. Funded activities must be completed between June 1, 2016, and May 31, 2017. Past recipients of the grant are ineligible to reapply.

Visit the NCTM website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
