National Council of Teachers of Mathematics appoints Angela Barlow as editor-in-chief of new practitioner journal
- 16 Jul 2018

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) has announced Angela Barlow, dean of the University of Central Arkansas Graduate School, as the editor-in-chief of its new practitioner journal: Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PreK-12, which will launch January 2020.

The new journal reflects the current practices of mathematics education, as well as maintaining a knowledge base of practice and policy in looking at the future of the field. Content is aimed at the grades from preschool to 12th grade with peer-reviewed and invited articles.

Barlow also serves as director of Sponsored Programs at the UCA and brings a wealth of relevant experience as the former editor of the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics's (NCSM) Journal of Mathematics Education Leadership, where she expanded the journal's frequency, and from appointments on numerous journal editorial panels, including Mathematics Teacher Educator, her record as a mathematics educator includes instructional experience at a variety of grade levels.

In July 2017, the NCTM Board of Directors approved a proposal to consolidate its three practitioner journals - Teaching Children Mathematics, Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, and Mathematics Teacher - with a January 2020 launch of the new journal as a kick-off to NCTM's centennial year celebration. Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PreK-12, will be published 12 times a year, will provide more frequent and timely content on topics of relevance to math educators and learners, and the digital version of the journal will embrace the latest technology to promote individual member engagement and community, while continuing to deliver the grade-band specific high-quality classroom resource materials.

He is perhaps best known for his classification system for tilted octahedra in perovskites.

The Newsletter will continue to be the place to go for finding out news and developments in crystallography. Two issues are planned for 2018, with four issues per year to appear from 2019 onwards. Feature articles, information about research, meeting announcements and reports, or other items of potential interest to crystallographers may be submitted to the Editor at any time. Items will be selected for publication on the basis of suitability, content, style, timeliness and appeal.
