Professional Activities

The Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics holds a two-day Annual Meeting in the fall. This meeting is an opportunity to hear excellent speakers, participate in workshops, and exchange ideas with other teachers. Regional meetings provide the same opportunities on a smaller scale.

The Council sponsors an annual Math Contest that includes regional competitions and state finals.

In order to promote mathematics teaching as a career, the Council awards scholarships to outstanding college students. ICTM Awards are given to honor outstanding contributions to mathematics education in Illinois.

As an affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, ICTM works to promote professional standards on the national level.

In Illinois, the Council works with its Cooperative and Affiliate Groups and the Illinois State Board of Education to improve mathematics and the teaching of mathematics.
