Welcome to a new school year!
VCTM has been hard at work this summer making plans to support all mathematics educators. We have grant opportunities, scholarships, an AWARD-WINNING journal, newsletters, and are getting all of the details ready for the 2019 Conference. We hope this is the best year ever!
VCTM 2019 Conference
Our 2019 Conference will be held at Longwood University on March 8 - 9. Details about this event can be found on the conferences and PD page.
We are currently accepting proposals to speak at our event. Please consider submitting a proposal!
2019 National Math Festival
Did you know that Washington, DC is the host of the 2019 National Math Festival? This incredible festival and its many free, fun, and surprising activities are just months away! The event is even more special when you come not just with family, but with friends, too! So be a multiplier, not a divider — and share your plans to attend on your favorite social media platforms. Remember, more friends attending = more fun!
Mark your calendars for May 4, 2019, and go to www.nationalmathfestival.org for more information. Let's see if we can get a strong contingent from VCTM attending!
