The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is accepting applications from teachers in grades 7-12 for classroom research grants.
Grants of up to $6,000 will be awarded to support and encourage classroom-based research in precollege mathematics education. The research must be a collaborative effort involving a college or university mathematics educator (a mathematics education researcher or a teacher of mathematics learning, teaching, or curriculum) and one or more middle or high school classroom teacher. The project may include but is not restricted to research on curriculum development and implementation; involvement of at-risk or minority students; students’ thinking about a particular math concept or set of concepts; the connection of mathematics to other disciplines; focused learning and teaching of mathematics with the embedded use of technology; and/or innovative assessment or evaluation strategies. The research should lead to a draft article suitable for submission in Mathematics Teacher Educator, thr Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, or in an NCTM school journal.
To be eligible, applicants must be a current Full Individual member or E-Member of NCTM (if a high school teacher), or someone who teaches at a college or university. Seventh- or eighth-grade teacher applicants may be a current Full Individual or E-Member or teach at a school having a current NCTM pre-K–8 school membership.
See the NCTM website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
