The Upper East Tennessee Council of Teachers of Mathematics is an organization for anyone involved in mathematics education from preschool through college in the greater Tri-Cities region. We usually meet six afternoons a year in various locations across the region.


Usual schedule: Refreshments and gathering 4:00, Business meeting 4:30; Program(s) 5:00 - 6:00.

Meetings are typically on a Monday or Tuesday afternoon as determined by the board. They have been at elementary, intermediate, middle and high schools as well as Northeast State and ETSU.

Meetings for 2013-14 have been hampered because of difficulties in getting schools to act as hosts. We will likely have one day-long conference in spring 2014 instead. Watch this space for more information as it becomes available.
