Description:Enhancing Student Mathematics Learning through the Use of Tools and Technology Grants are awarded to classroom teachers in prekindergarten through grade 12 to encourage innovative use of technology and other tools for effective teaching and meaningful student learning. Eligible grant expenses include materials such as books, calculators, tablets, computers, or related equipment, as well as professional development in the use of the designated tools and technology. The proposal focus should be on the mathematics being taught and innovative uses of the tools and technology.

Eligible applicants must teach mathematics in prekindergarten through grade 12 for at least 50 percent of the school day and must be current National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) members or teach at a school with a current NCTM school membership. Proposals must include a plan for evaluating materials used and anticipated impact on student learning. Applicants are encouraged to seek matching funds from internal and external sources.

In addition to the cover sheet, applicants must provide a proposal describing the plan to teach mathematics with innovative uses of tools and technology, including professional development; how the plan will help teachers and students visualize and concretize mathematics abstractions; an itemized budget; and assessment plan for evaluating the project impact on student learning.

Also required is up to one page outlining the teacherís background and experience, including formal education and teaching experience related to the grant proposal. A one-page signed letter of support from the teacherís principal must be provided on school stationery.
