NCTM Accepting Applications From Music Projects to Teach Pre-K-2 Mathematics


The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is accepting applications from teachers of pre-K-2 mathematics for projects that incorporate music into the elementary school classroom as a way to help young students learn mathematics.

With support from the Esther Mendelsohn Fund, the Using Music to Teach Mathematics program awards grants of up to $3,000 to individual classroom teachers or small groups of teachers collaborating on the grade level or across grade levels. Any acquisition of equipment must support the proposed plan but may not be the primary focus of the grant. Proposals must address the combining of mathematics and music, planning for improving students’ learning of mathematics, and/or the anticipated impact on students’ achievement.

Applicants must be a current full, individual,- or e-member of NCTM or teach in a school with a current NCTM pre-K–8 school membership and currently teach mathematics or collaborate with teachers of mathematics in grades pre-K–2. Funded activities must be completed between June 1, 2016, and May 31, 2017.

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