Welcome to the
Texas Council of Teachers of Mathematics
The Texas Council of Teachers of Mathematics (TCTM) is a professional organization that encourages an active interest in mathematics. TCTM publishes a journal called The Texas Mathematics Teacher.
Through The Texas Mathematics Teacher and the annual Conference for the Advancement of Mathematics Teaching (CAMT), educators have the opportunity to study and increase their knowledge of effective teaching practices in mathematics.
TCTM's mission is focused in five areas: recruit and retain mathematics teachers, support curriculum and instruction, advocate education policy, communicate with teachers and serve as the Texas partner affiliate to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). In addition, TCTM is also an affiliate of the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM).
