The purpose of the South Dakota Council of Teachers of Mathematics is to
encourage and maintain an active interest in and an appreciation of mathematics,
promote professional growth of mathematics educators, to provide a forum for the
exchange of views regarding the teaching of mathematics, to develop a cohesive link
between and to promote the cooperative study of mathematics education at all
levels, to integrate the study of mathematics into other areas of school
curriculum, and to relate the study of mathematics to situations in life.
We host a conference each February to help achieve the aforementioned goals. We
provide support for South Dakota mathematics teachers, connect them to each
other, and act as a clearinghouse for information regarding mathematics and
We act individually and collectively as
consultants for school districts and for the Department of Education. SDCTM
represents member concerns with Department of Education policies and actions.
