CMT is a publication of CCTM that is published three times a year. CMT depends on the contributions of its members for its success.

Welcome to the new, digital CCTM journal - The Colorado Mathematics Teacher! We hope that you will enjoy using the articles and activities in this new, accessible format. With this change, we have been able to include additional information and, hopefully, a more extensive selection of activities for all members. Current issues of the CMT are available to members only.

Call for Articles and Activities

Readers are invited to submit reviews, announcements, letters, articles or activities for possible publication in the CMT. Deadlines for submissions are March 1st for the Spring issue, July 1st for the Summer/Fall Issue, and November 1st for the Winter Issue. Current topics of interest include:
