Research Grants for Teachers of Grades 7-12
NCTM Accepting Applications for Classroom Research Grants for Teachers of Grades 7-12
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is accepting applications for grades 7-12 classroom research grants.
Grants of up to $6,000 will be awarded to support and encourage classroom-based research in precollege mathematics education. The research must be a collaborative effort involving a college or university mathematics educator (a mathematics education researcher or a teacher of mathematics learning, teaching, or curriculum) and one or more grade 7–12 classroom teachers. The project may include but is not restricted to research on curriculum development and implementation; involvement of at-risk or minority students; students’ thinking about a particular mathematics concept or set of concepts; connection of mathematics to other disciplines; focused learning and teaching of mathematics with embedded use of technology; and/or innovative assessment or evaluation strategies. The research completed under the grant should lead to a draft article suitable for submission to the Mathematics Teacher Educator, Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, or in one of the NCTM school journals.
To be eligible, applicants must be current (on or before October 15, 2014) Full Individual members or E-Members of NCTM (if a 9-12 teacher), or an individual who teaches at a college or university.
