  • Let's Celebrate!

    Every year at the NCTM Annual Meeting & Exposition, MET celebrates and recognizes the achievements and contributions of colleagues, mentors, and friends. There is much to celebrate—the NCTM Lifetime Achievement awardees, all the past Lifetime Achievement Award recipients for their distinguished service to mathematics education; and the generosity of all MET donors, especially honorees who have named MET funds and whose gifts to MET continue to provide great opportunities for professional growth and leadership developments.

    In 2013 MET presented its first MET Celebration and Silent Auction—a sold out event. In 2014 NCTM published the first MET cookbook, Recipes You Can Count On, featuring recipes from notable mathematics educators. In 2015, MET commissioned and sold, through an online auction, an original water color painting called Math Magic. In 2016, MET hosted a wine tasting!
