The Iowa Council of Teachers of Mathematics (ICTM) is a state-wide organization solely dedicated to serving the needs of mathematics educators in Iowa. Hundreds of teachers - elementary, middle school, high school, and college - come together under the umbrella of ICTM to work together to ensure ALL students in Iowa receive a high quality education in mathematics.
