National Council of Teachers of Mathematics: Enhancing Student Mathematics Learning through the Use of Tools and Technology Grants (Pre-K-12)Deadline: May 4, 2018
Enhancing Student Mathematics Learning through the Use of Tools and Technology Grants encourage the innovative use of technology and other tools to help teachers and students visualize and concretize mathematics abstractions. When used appropriately, they can enhance other effective teaching and promote meaningful learning opportunities for students. Grants may be used to purchase materials such as books, calculators, tablets, computers, or related equipment as well as professional development in the use of the designated tools and technology. The focus of the proposal should be on the mathematics being taught and innovative uses of the tools and technology. Proposals must include a plan for evaluating materials and the anticipated impact on students’ learning. Applicants are encouraged to seek matching funds from internal and external sources.
Amount: Grants of up to $3,000 each will be awarded.
Eligibility: The applicant must be an individual teacher who is a current NTCM member (on or before April 20, 2018) or who teaches at a school with a current (on or before April 20, 2018) NCTM Pre-K-8 school membership, and who currently teach mathematics in grades Pre-K-12 at least 50 percent of the school day.
