National Council of Teachers of Mathematics: Improving Students’ Understanding of Geometry GrantsDeadline: November 3, 2017
Improving Students’ Understanding of Geometry Grants seek to develop activities that will enable students to better appreciate and understand some aspect of geometry that is consistent with adopted standards. The project should include applications of geometry to, for example, art, literature, music, architecture, nature, or some other relevant area and may integrate the use of technology into the teaching of geometry. The activities may use published materials. Any acquisition of equipment or payment of personal stipends must be critical to the grant proposal. Proposals must address the following: geometry content, the appropriateness of the application, the link between the Geometry Standard and the project’s activities, and the anticipated impact on students’ learning.
Amount: Grants of up to $4,000 will be awarded.
Eligibility: Applicants must be a current (on or before October 13, 2017) Full Individual or E-Member of NCTM or teach at a school with a current (on or before October 13, 2017) NCTM Pre-K-8 school membership and be currently teaching at the grades Pre-K-8 level.
