RESTON —July 14, 2020—The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) is proud to announce that its digitized archive of all NCTM journals is available to members on the recently launched NCTM publications website. 


Premium members have access to all archival issues of the Journal for Research in Mathematics Education (JRME) and Mathematics Teacher Educator (MTE) in addition to all issues of the legacy journals: Mathematics Teacher (MT), Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School (MTMS), Teaching Children Mathematics (TCM), and Arithmetic Teacher (AT). Essential members have access to their choice of one of the legacy journal archives. 


“The collation of all of NCTM’s journal content on the publications website is a significant achievement for our mathematics community,” commented Trena Wilkerson, NCTM President. “The archive, with more than 100 years of valuable content, is available to our teachers, teacher educators, and researchers as a resource that will enhance their mathematics learning and teaching journey.”


JRME, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, is devoted to the interests of teachers and researchers at all levels—preschool through college. 


MTE, NCTM’s first online journal, contributes to building a professional knowledge base for mathematics teacher educators that stems from, develops, and strengthens practitioner knowledge. 


TCM debuted in 1994, when the AT ended its 40-year run. TCM was intended as a resource for elementary school teachers and teacher educators to help students develop a strong conceptual basis leading to a greater ability to grasp abstract mathematics.


MTMS was intended as a resource for middle school students, teachers, and teacher educators. Its focus was on intuitive, exploratory investigations that used informal reasoning to help students develop a strong conceptual basis leading to proficiency in grasping abstract mathematical ideas.


MT began publishing in September 1908 and focused on improving mathematics instruction for grades 8–14 and supporting teacher education programs.
