Using Music to Teach Mathematics Grants for Grades PreK–2 Teachers
The purpose of this grant is to incorporate music into the elementary school classroom to help young students learn mathematics.
For 2012–2013, grants with a maximum of $3,000 each will be awarded to persons currently teaching mathematics in grades PreK–2 level. This award is for individual classroom teachers or small groups of teachers collaborating in one grade or across grade levels. Any acquisition of equipment must support the proposed plan but not be the primary focus of the grant.
Proposals must address the following: the combining of mathematics and music; the plan for improving students’ learning of mathematics; and the anticipated impact on students’ achievement.
Activities are to be completed between June 1, 2012, and May 31, 2013. Past recipients of this grant are ineligible to reapply. No person(s) may receive more than one award administered by the Mathematics Education Trust in the same academic year.
Interested teachers are invited to submit a proposal (see website instructions). The application packet must be postmarked by November 11, 2011.
