The Mathematics Education Trust of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) will award up to $6,000 to help educators teach mathematics more effectively at the elementary level by deepening their mathematical content knowledge and teaching abilities. The recipient of the Eizen grant will work collaboratively with other teachers in the same district to improve mathematics instruction. The recipient is expected to become a teacher leader in mathematics and to develop expertise in specific mathematics content aligned with NCTM’s Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. Recipients should be confident in teaching mathematics and should routinely extend the classroom beyond the textbook with the goal of furnishing comprehensive, in-depth instruction to elementary school students.
