Puget Sound Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Puget Sound Council of Teachers of Mathematics is a professional organization dedicated to improving Math Teaching in the Puget Sound Region. PSCTM is an affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and one of the organizations that rotates in hosting the Northwest Math Conferences in October. We offer an annual scholarship to PSCTM members for the conference to honor Elden Egbers, who was a big supporter of attendance at the conferences. You can download more information and the application instructions are contained in this Word document.
If you teach Mathematics in the Puget Sound region, consider joining PSCTM, Washington State Mathematics Council, or both.
PSCTM was founded to encourage continual professional growth among local mathematics teachers. The organization sponsors three major activities during the year: a fall, a winter, and a spring dinner. A variety of programs are presented at these events, ranging from using a given manipulative in grades K-12 to the role teachers are playing in the new assessments.
