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 encourage classroom-based research in pre-college 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 middle- or high school 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 should lead to a draft article suitable for submission to the Mathematics Teacher Educator, Journal for Research in Mathematics Education or an NCTM school journal.

To be eligible, applicants must be a current Full Individual member or E-Member of NCTM )if a grade 9-12 teacher), or someone who teaches at a college or university. Seventh- or eighth-grade teacher applicants may be a current Full Individual or E-Member or teach at a school having a current NCTM pre-K–8 school membership.

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