PreToM is a Student Affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)

In October 2015 the WSU Pre-service Teachers of Mathematics (PreToM) became an official Student Affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). PreToM was nominated for this by the Washington State Math Council. As an official Student Affiliate of NCTM, PreToM has opportunities for grants, math tasks for use in MathCircles, connections with other service teachers, and its members have the ability to gain experience as teacher leaders.
