Welcome to the OCTM website!
Membership: Join or Renew
We are excited to welcome you as a new or renewing member of OCTM! Anyone interested in mathematics education is invited to become part of the OCTM professional community.
Why be part of OCTM?
What opportunities do you and your mathematics colleagues have to participate in informed, collaborative professional growth? If you are a school leader, do your teachers participate in OCTM? You can help colleagues become part of this strong network of 3,000+ educators in Ohio.
