The Illinois Mathematics Teacher is the official journal of the Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

The journal provides ideas and information for mathematics teachers at all levels of the curriculum (K-16). Most of the authors are in-service teachers offering practical ideas for improving classroom instruction. The editors invite submissions from both new and experienced authors and accept articles on a range of topics, including: innovative classroom activities and lessons, applications to the classroom of pedagogical research and best practices, examples of implementing standards, reviews of recent books on pedagogy, and any other articles that will support the professional development of ICTM members.

We are always accepting new submissions to the journal; for more information, please see the guidelines for submission page.
