Mathematics teachers are trained to assess students' abilities and instructional needs. Many teachers utilize creative teaching strategies, games, and various media to meet those needs. Surveys indicate that teachers are constantly searching for new skill instruction strategies, time savers, games, materials, and other ways to improve teaching in mathematics classrooms. In order to meet the needs expressed by educators concerning busy schedules and the lack of time to get together with fellow teachers to share ideas and visit each others' classrooms, a mathematics publication (to be distributed district-wide) was developed to address these needs. The publication was written by and for teachers. Mathematics teachers shared ideas with other teachers in the district in articles which were published in the issue. A target group was pre-surveyed before the publication and post-surveyed after the publication was distributed. The knowledge and value expressed by the target group indicated the desire for future issues in the district.
