National Council of Teachers of Mathematics: Music Projects to Teach Mathematics GrantsDeadline: November 4, 2016
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) is accepting applications to incorporate music into the elementary school classroom to help young students learn mathematics. This award is for individual classroom teachers (defined as an individual who spends half or more of his/her work time teaching in the classroom) or small groups of teachers collaborating in one grade or across grade levels. Any acquisition of equipment must support the proposed plan but not be the primary focus of the grant. Proposals must address the following: the combining of mathematics and music; the plan for improving students’ learning of mathematics; and the anticipated impact on students’ achievement.
Amount: Grants of up to $3,000 will be made.
Eligibility: Applicants must be a current (on or before October 14, 2016) full individual or e-member of NCTM or teach in a school with a current (on or before October 14, 2016) NCTM PreK-8 school membership and currently teach mathematics or collaborate with teachers of mathematics in grades PreK-2.
