About Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School (MTMS) 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.

MTMS made its debut along with TCM in 1994, when The Arithmetic Teacher ended its 40-year run. As an official peer-reviewed NCTM journal, MTMS was intended as a resource for middle school students, teachers, and teacher educators. The focus of the journal was on intuitive, exploratory investigations that used informal reasoning to help students develop a strong conceptual basis leading to greater mathematical abstraction.
Access to the MTMS archives is just one of the many benefits of NCTM membership.
