The precursor to this journal was the Texas Project NExT Journal which consisted of contributed papers by by Texas Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) Fellows. The TX CMJ was designed to address the broad spectrum of interests of the Texas Section's membership, including NExT; therefore, the NExT Journal was brought under the umbrella of TX CMJ.

Texas Project NExT Journal

The Texas Project NExT Journal served as a forum for the exchange of ideas in mathematics research by Texas Project NExT Fellows, and was a precursor to the development of the Texas College Mathematics Journal.
