NCTM Invites Applications for Projects that Connect Mathematics to Other Subjects
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is inviting applications for projects to create senior high school classroom materials or lessons connecting mathematics to other fields.
For the 2014-15 cycle, NCTM Connecting Mathematics to Other Subject Areas grants of up to $4,000 each will be awarded to persons currently teaching mathematics in grades 9-12. Materials may be in the form of books, visual displays, computer programs or displays, slide shows, videotapes, or other appropriate media. The focus of these materials should be on showing the connectivity of mathematics to other fields or to the world around us. Any acquisition of equipment or payment of personal stipends must be critical to the grant proposal and may not be a major portion of the proposed budget.
Any published sources must be documented. Proposals must address the plan for developing and evaluating materials, the connectivity to other fields or disciplines, and anticipated impact on students' learning.
All funded activities are to be completed between June 1, 2014, and May 31, 2015.
To be eligible, applicants must be a current (on or before October 15, 2013) full individual or e-member of NCTM and currently teach mathematics in grades 9-12 at least 50 percent of the school day.

ING Unsung Heroes Program Invites K-12 Educators to Apply for 2014 Class Project Awards
The ING Unsung Heroes awards program annually recognizes K-12 educators in the United States for their innovative teaching methods, creative educational projects, and ability to positively influence the children they teach.
Educators are invited to submit grant applications describing class projects they have initiated or would like to pursue.
Each year, one hundred educators are selected to receive awards of $2,000 each to help fund their projects. At least one award will be granted in each of the fifty United States, provided one or more qualified applications are received from each state. Of the hundred finalists, three will be selected for additional financial awards. First place will receive $25,000; second place will receive $10,000; and the third-place winner will receive $5,000. All awards must be used to further the projects within the school or school system.
All K-12 education professionals are eligible to apply. Applicants must be employed by an accredited K-12 public or private school located in the U.S. and be a full-time educator, teacher, principal, paraprofessional, or classified staff member working on a project with demonstrated effectiveness in improving student learning. Previous recipients of ING Unsung Heroes awards are not eligible to apply for another award.
Complete program guidelines, the application form, and information on previously funded projects are available at the ING Web site.
