Wisconsin Teacher of Mathematics, the official journal of the Wisconsin Mathematics Council, is published twice a year. Annual WMC membership includes a 1-year subscription to this journal and to the Wisconsin Mathematics Council Newsletter. The Wisconsin Teacher of Mathematics is a forum for the exchange of ideas. Opinions expressed in this journal are those of the authors and may not necessarily reflect those of the Council or editorial staff.

We welcome submissions and encourage articles from a broad range of topics related to the teaching and learning of mathematics. In particular, we seek submissions that:

  • Present engaging tasks that can be implemented in the Pk–12 classroom.
  • Connect mathematics education research and theory to classroom practice.
  • Showcase innovative uses of technology in the classroom.
  • Focus on work with preservice teachers in the field.
  • Discuss current issues or trends in mathematics education.

Other submissions not focusing on these strands are also welcome. 

All manuscripts are subject to an editorial and peer review process. If you have questions or wish to submit an article for review, please email Josh Hertel ( for more information.
