Team of Faculty, Student Editors Bring
National Award to Virginia Math Journal
Guided by Editor-in-Chief Dr. Agida Manizade, the “Virginia Mathematics Teacher” has been awarded the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) 2018 Publication Award for Outstanding Journal.
The award is based on a journal’s quality over two consecutive years. It is the first time the Virginia-based journal has won the national award. “Virginia Mathematics Teacher” is a bi-annual print and electronic publication geared toward mathematics educators, students and professionals. Dr. Manizade, a mathematics and statistics professor at Radford University, has served as editor-in-chief for the past two and a half years.
She and Associate Editor Dr. Jean Mistele, Associate Professor at Radford University, accepted the award April 26 at the annual NCTM Conference in Washington, D.C.
Students Cameron Leo and Alexandra Largen work with Dr. Manizade and Dr. Mistele on the journal and were at the ceremony to receive the honor. Ms. Leo is a graduate student in the Math Education Content Studies program, and Ms. Largen is a rising senior computer science major and mathematics minor from Laurel Fork.
“Every member of the editorial board has contributed to our success,” Dr. Manizade said. “It’s been a great pleasure to work with an extremely talented and devoted group of professionals.”
“Dr. Manizade took over the journal in Fall 2015 and completely transformed it into an award-winning publication. It’s all new material, and the team is always looking for new, quality writers,” Jamey Lovin, VCTM past president, said. “She and her staff have done an excellent job.”
