About the Indiana Mathematics Teacher

The Indiana Mathematics Teacher is the official journal of the Indiana Council of Teachers of Mathematics (ICTM).  It is published twice a year and is distributed by mail to all current members.

The journal provides ideas and information for mathematics teachers at all levels of the curriculum (PreK-16).  The editors invite submissions from new and experienced authors and accept articles on a range of topics including innovative classroom activities and lessons, practical applications of pedagogical research and theory, thoughtful reflections on challenges faced in the mathematics classroom, strategies and stories of mathematics coaching and teacher leadership, and any other topics that support the professional learning of ICTM members. We especially encourage collaborations between PreK-12 teachers and higher education faculty. 

Indiana residents whose feature articles appear in the Indiana Mathematics Teacher will be granted free membership to ICTM for one year.
