Who Are We?

Welcome to the Oklahoma Council of Teachers of Mathematics (OCTM) website. We are a state affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. The members of OCTM promote effective teaching of mathematics by providing teachers with resources, publishing newsletters and journals, providing professional development opportunities through our annual conference, and connecting members to each other and to information beyond our state. OCTM is also a member of the Oklahoma Math Alliance, an organization made up of member institutions committed to the improvement of math education across the state.
