In addition to active calls for manuscripts on particular topics, as listed below, the Editorial Panel of MTMS is interested in publishing articles the full range of topics in middle school mathematics education.
2016 Focus Issue: Probability & Statistics
This call for manuscripts invites articles that address how to
approach probability and statistics in the middle school classroom. Of
particular interest is manuscripts that include classroom-tested activities for
grades 5-9 that are supported by examples of student work.
Mathematics Teaching Practices in Action
Manuscripts submitted to this call should provide supporting
evidence of the “specialized expertise and professional knowledge,” as
exhibited by the eight Mathematics Teaching Practices found in
NCTM’s Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All.
Technology in the Math Classroom
Readers are invited
to submit manuscripts addressing the use of technology in the mathematics
classroom. We especially invite responses from middle school classroom teachers
who detail their experiences. Given the rapid change in the power and nature of
available technology, not to mention the ways that students may embrace
technologies differently from teachers, the MTMS Editorial Panel seeks
manuscripts that address this ongoing challenge.
Response to Intervention (RtI)
Response to Intervention (RtI) is described as a multitiered approach to identify and assist students who need additional help in grasping a concept to avoid failure. The Editorial Panel of Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School invites you to share your ideas about interventions in the middle-grades mathematics classroom, particularly addressing innovative strategies and their effectiveness, including algebra readiness.
Effective discourse happens when students articulate their own ideas and seriously consider their peers’ mathematical perspectives as a way to construct mathematical understandings. Manuscripts submitted in response to this call should discuss mathematical communication that occurs in a classroom
All calls are open unless otherwise noted.
This department relates lessons learned from research to classroom practice for teachers.
Provides lessons with activity sheets that teachers can use directly in the classroom.
Ongoing Department Calls
There is a place in MTMS for your ideas. If your idea doesn't warrant a 2500 word manuscript, your work will fit here.
