Writing for Journals


NCTM's three professional journals provide guidance and resources for developing and implementing mathematics curriculum, instruction, and assessment that are coherent, focused, well-articulated, and consistent with research in the field. Increased student learning can be achieved with the effective innovative practices found in our journals that bring a fresh perspective to the challenges of working with mathematics students in all grade levels. Because these journals are all published through different volunteer editors, the submission guidelines vary.

Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12

NCTM’s newest journal has a unique point of view—your view as a practicing teacher of mathematics. The journal spans pre-K–12 but continues to provide focused, grade-band-specific articles.
