The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is inviting proposals from collaborative action research projects seeking to improve classroom teachers' understanding and teaching of mathematics in pre-K–8 classrooms.
Priority will be given to collaborations consisting of university, elementary/middle school teachers, and pre-service teachers from the undergraduate ranks. The research should be designed and implemented with a focus on enhancing the teaching and/or learning of math from pre-K to grade 8.
A single grant of up to $3,000 will be awarded. Grant funds should be used to support expenses incurred in planning and carrying out the research.
Applicants must be a current full individual or e-member of NCTM or teach at a school with a current NCTM pre-K–8 school membership. The participating pre-service teacher(s) must be in an initial licensure/certification program at the undergraduate level and at some point during the term of the grant must be engaged in some form of practicum experience or student teaching.
For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the NCTM website.
