The Mathematics Education Trust: Supporting Teachers…Reaching Students…Building Futures
With the philanthropy, dedication, and support of donors and partners, NCTM’s Mathematics Education Trust (MET) has for 38 years been putting money directly into the hands of educators who want to improve themselves and the teaching of mathematics. If you too would like to support the worthy efforts of fellow teachers, prospective teachers, and math educators through MET programs, please consider making a contribution today.
