Legacy Journals

  • In January 2020, NCTM launched the highly-anticipated new practitioner monthly journal, Mathematics Teacher: Learning & Teaching PK–12 (MTLT). MTLT replaces the NCTM practitioner journals Mathematics Teacher, Teaching Children Mathematics, and Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, which were published through May 2019. All NCTM members have access to MTLT.

    NCTM hosts digital archives of all its current and former journals in our easily accessible format on our journal site.

    Essential members have access to their choice of one of the grade-band–specific digital journal archives. Premium members enjoy access to all three archives plus currently produced Journal for Research in Mathematics Education (JRME) and Mathematics Teacher Educator (MTE).

    Enjoy your access to the archives and current journals. Please contact nctm@nctm.org if you have any questions or to upgrade to Premium Membership.

    MTE Masthead

    Mathematics Teacher Educator (MTE) is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal for practitioners in mathematics teacher education that is published three times a year. MTE contributes to building a professional knowledge base for mathematics teacher educators that stems from, develops, and strengthens practitioner knowledge. The audience for the journal is broadly defined as anyone who contributes to the preparation and professional development of pre-K–12 pre-service and in-service teachers of mathematics. Mathematics teacher educators include mathematics educators, mathematicians, teacher leaders, school district mathematics experts, and others.
