The proposal may include, but is not restricted to, research on the following topics:

  • 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 (any acquisition of equipment must support the proposed plan but not be the primary focus of the grant)
  • Innovative assessment or evaluation strategies

Amount: Grants of up to $6,000 each will be awarded.

Eligibility: The applicant must be either: 1) a college or university mathematics educator who is a full-year individual member or e-member of NCTM (on or before October 14, 2016), or 2) a teacher (a) with a full-year individual member or e-member of NCTM (on or before October 14, 2016) or (b) who teaches at a school having a current (on or before October 14, 2016) NCTM Pre-K-8 school membership.
