Coastal Council of Teachers of Mathematics

The Coastal Council of Teachers of Mathematics (CCTM) was formed in 2006 to promote innovative teaching of mathematics in the Coastal Bend area of South Texas.


A regional affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), the CCTM sponsors an annual conference each summer, ME by the SEa, which brings together 300+ local mathematics educators.

To view last year’s program and register for ME by the SEa 2020:

CCTM members also provide annual Family Learning Institute events for local educators.  These free institutes for teachers and administrators provide examples and resources for hosting family learning events such as Family Math Nights and Family Science Nights.

Our Logo

The logo of the CCTM is the nautilus shell, whose chambers increase in number and size with the growth of the animal. The shell curvature demonstrates the Fibonacci numbers: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, …

The nautilus illustrates a “golden spiral” of Fibonacci Numbers.
