Submission of Manuscripts

We invite the submission of news, announcements, and articles useful to school mathematics teachers or mathematics teacher educators. In particular, K-12 teachers are encouraged to submit articles describing teaching mathematical content in innovative ways.
News and announcements (president's messages, award winner announcements, professional development announcements, etc.) must be received by December 1 for the spring issue and by July 1 for the fall issue. Articles that have not been published before and are not under review elsewhere may be submitted at any time to the address below. Submit one electronic copy via email attachment (preferred) or diskette in Microsoft Word or rich text file format. To allow for blind review, the author's name and contact information should appear only on a separate title page. Manuscripts should not exceed 10 pages double-spaced with one-inch margins. Figures and other pictures should be included in the document in line with the text (not as floating objects). Scannable photos are acceptable and should be large glossy prints mailed to the editor or minimum 300 dpi tiff files emailed to the editor. Proof of the photographer's permission is required. For photos of students, parent or guardian permission is required.
Manuscripts should follow APA style guidelines from the most recent edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. References should be listed at the end of the article, and should also follow APA style.
General articles and teacher activities are welcome, as are the following special categories of articles:

  • A Teacher's Story
