  1. Student Explorations in Mathematics - National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)
    An official journal of the NCTM, Student Explorations in Mathematics publishes resources for teachers and teacher educators at grades 5-10. Each issue develops a single mathematical theme or concept in such a way that fifth grade students can understand the first one or two pages, and so that high school students will be challenged by the last page. The content and style of the notes are intended to interest students in the power and beauty of mathematics and to introduce teachers to some of the challenging areas of mathematics within the reach of their students. Article downloads are free to individual members who subscribe to SEM. Read submission guidelines and browse back issues. more>>
