Write a Book for NCTM
NCTM books present new and different approaches to develop and support best practices in mathematics education. Do you have an idea? NCTM seeks authors with innovative ideas for books that will support teachers and the mathematics education community, whether you want to develop your idea in a book proposal or you've already turned it into a completed manuscript. See NCTM's online catalog www.nctm.org/store for the full array of current NCTM publications.
What to Write
Submissions for publication by NCTM should represent approaches that are new and different from those found in other publications on a similar topic. Materials published by NCTM should broaden the professional development of its members by either explaining tested techniques and ideas or providing frameworks for daily activity in the mathematics classroom. NCTM is also interested in materials that use current and emerging technologies.
The Publishing Committee (PC) of NCTM approves all additions to the NCTM book program. Ideally, authors would first submit a proposal with an outline and sample chapters and then a completed manuscript after the PC has commented on the proposal. If the manuscript is already completed, the
proposal form should accompany it.
How to Submit
Submit proposals and full manuscripts by using our automated system,
Manuscript Central: NCTM Books. Each submission must be accompanied by a proposal that will go to our Publishing Committee.
A proposal consists of the following:
