About Mathematics Teacher

  • Welcome To Mathematics Teacher

    Mathematics Teacher (MT) is no longer accepting manuscripts for publication. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics launched a new practitioner journal, Mathematics Teacher: Learning & Teaching PK–12 (MTLT), in January 2020. MTLT replaces three NCTM practitioner journals: Teaching Children Mathematics, Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, and Mathematics Teacher. The new journal reflects the current practices of mathematics education and maintains a knowledge base of practice and policy in looking at the future of the field. Content of peer-reviewed and invited articles is aimed at the grades from preschool through 12. NCTM publications have always presented a variety of viewpoints. The views expressed or implied in all publications, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official positions of the Council.

    The Archives

    As an official journal of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, MT was devoted to improving mathematics instruction from grades 8–14 and supporting teacher education programs. It provided a forum for sharing activities and pedagogical strategies, deepening understanding of mathematical ideas, and linking mathematics education research to practice. MT solicited original submissions from high school mathematics teachers, university mathematicians, and mathematics educators. The MT Editorial Panel strongly encouraged manuscripts in which ideas related to classroom practice. MT articles won numerous awards, including honors from Association Media and Publishing, the premier membership organization serving the needs of association publishers.

    MT had a long, illustrious history. Publication began in 1908. On February 24, 1920, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics organized in Cleveland, Ohio, shortly thereafter acquiring the Mathematics Teacher journal from the Association of Teachers of Mathematics in the Middle States and Maryland, and changing publication from quarterly to eight issues per year.

    Access to the MT archives is just one of the many benefits of NCTM membership. For access to issues from January 1908 through May 2019, click on the “All Issues” tab or on Mathematics-Teacher.
