About Mathematics Teacher

  • Welcome To Mathematics Teacher

    The Mathematics Teacher (MT), an official journal of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, is devoted to improving mathematics instruction from grade 8-14 and supporting teacher education programs. It provides a forum for sharing activities and pedagogical strategies, deepening understanding of mathematical ideas, and linking mathematics education research to practice.

    Mathematics Teacher solicits original submissions from high school mathematics teachers, university mathematicians, and mathematics educators and strongly encourages manuscripts in which ideas relate to classroom practice. The journal's articles have won numerous awards, including honors from Association Media and Publishing, the premier membership organization serving the needs of association publishers.

    MT is published seven times a year, with issues published in the following months: September, October, November/December, January/February, March, April, and May.

    The Council’s publications encourage and present a variety of viewpoints, however, the views expressed or implied in this publication, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official positions of the Council.


    MT is just one of the many benefits of NCTM membership. If you are already a member subscribing to one of the other journals, you can also subscribe to MT for a nominal fee.
