Equity in Mathematics Grants for Grades 6-8

Type: Foundations
Source: National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Program: Equity in Mathematics Grants for Grades 6-8
Eligibility: The applicant must be a current (on or before October 15, 2014) Full Individual or E-Member of NCTM or teach at a school with a current (on or before October 15, 2014) NCTM Pre-K–8 school membership and currently teach mathematics in grades 6–8 at least 50 percent of the school day.

Activities are to be completed between June 1, 2015, and May 31, 2016.

Past recipients of this grant are ineligible to reapply. No person(s) may receive more than one award administered by the Mathematics Education Trust in the same academic year.
Purpose: Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All (NCTM 2014) suggests that for the Access and Equity Principle, teachers model high expectations for each student’s success in problem solving, reasoning, and understanding as well as promote the development of a growth mindset among students (p. 115).

To these ends, the purpose of this grant is to incorporate middle school classroom materials or lessons that will improve the achievement of student groups that have previous records of underachievement. For 2015–2016, grants will be awarded to persons currently teaching mathematics in grades 6–8. This award is for individual classroom teachers* or small groups of teachers collaborating in one grade or across grade levels.

(*The definition of a classroom teacher is an individual who spends half or more of his/her work time teaching in the classroom.)
