Call for Manuscripts

We are seeking manuscripts that align to one of our regular features described below. Manuscripts are accepted on an on-going basis. Submit your manuscript here.

All articles are peer reviewed and feedback will be shared with the author. If you are interested in serving as a reviewer, contact us at

For questions, reach out to our editorial staff at

Research or Practitioner Articles

We are accepting papers on elementary, middle, and secondary mathematics teaching and education. 

Teaching Dilemmas

We are accepting articles that include teachers' reflections on mathematical topics you find challenging to teach.  If you have a difficult problem or topic you use for your students, please describe the problem, discuss common student difficulties with it, and the way you approach teaching this topic.

Culturally Responsive Teaching of Mathematics

CRT is a research-based approach to teaching. It connects students' cultures, languages, and life experiences with what they learn in school.

Notes from the Field

In this section we feature articles from teachers who find exceptional ways to teach "ordinary" concepts in their classrooms. 

Busting Blockbusters

In this section we are accepting suggestions for scenes from movies for readers to analyze and explain the mathematical plausibility of them. Please describe the scene and provide a timestamp for it.

Math girls 

What does your school division or institution do to encourage girls in mathematics? Submit any information or publications related to girls in mathematics education.

Unsolved Mathematical Mysteries

We are accepting articles about fascinating mathematical problems that have not yet been solved. The problem itself should be described simply so that a middle school student could understand it. It should also include the progress that has been made by the mathematics community on solving this problem.

Mathematics in Nature

In this section we feature articles that examine nature through the lens of mathematics. We are interested in articles that have meaning in the Kindergarten - Grade 12 classroom.

My Remarkable Student

Have you  had a student that changed the way you think and teach? If so, please submit an article describing your experiences with this student and the ways they have affected your teaching.
