About Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School (MTMS) is an official peer-reviewed journal of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and is intended as a resource for middle school students, teachers, and teacher educators. The focus of the journal is on intuitive, exploratory investigations that use informal reasoning
to help students develop a strong conceptual basis that leads to greater mathematical abstraction. The journal's articles have won numerous awards, including honors from the Society of National Association Publications.
MTMS is published nine times a year, monthly August through May, with a combined December/January issue and a yearly focus issue in February. School Journals are published at NCTM, 1906 Association Drive, Reston, VA 20191.
