  1. I just joined and have not been prompted to enter user name or password

      Hello Christopher,
      Sorry for the delay. The last step of the join/renew process is manual–a real live person must enter you into the database and send you your password…sometimes this takes a few hours as we are an all-volunteer organization at this point and we are not on duty 24/7. However during waking hours it never takes more than 2 or 3 hours tops before we send out a username and password.

  2. Taylor Webb says:

    I just registered but cannot get access to the member resource content. Is there anything else I should be doing? Thanks.

    • Colleen says:

      I t takes a little while (a few hours sometimes) to approve memberships–one of us has to be sitting at our computer. You should be all set now.

  3. Randy Steffer says:

    I just signed up for a membership and I have read the replies above but how do you know my e-mail or any other information to give me my login and password? I pretty much went to join, pay now, and paid. I was not asked for any other information.

    Hi, Colleen.

    I think I messed up my renewal with a different username. Both used, but I am not sure which username to use.


  5. Donna Blakeney says:

    I paid the $60 registration fee to join AMTA through my husband’s PayPal. I was never asked to submit my name or email address. Please let me know when I can start using this site.

    Thank you!

  6. Lloyd says:

    If I pay the $60.00 fee for the Associate Membership (for friends and fans of Modeling who have not yet taken a workshop) will I have access to Physic material and content? I am not yet a Physics professor however, I am interested in gaining access to the content for my personal use.

    • Lloyd says:

      What do all the different memberships get you access to? (ie the student, associate, summer workshop)

      • Colleen says:

        All levels of membership give you full access to all the member resources. We give price breaks to student-teachers, to teachers who have retired but choose to remain involved in the community and its activities, and to those who want to pay one time (life membership) to have permanent access to Modeling resources.

    I just registered but cannot get access to the member resource content. Is there anything else I should be doing? Thanks.

  8. Bob Sutherland says:

    I am trying to join, but paypal gives me no information on how to pay. I get into my paypal account and get no payment to or amount information.

    • Colleen says:

      Wouldn’t you know, just in time for our big December membership push our Paypal button for regular membership decided to lose its mind. It’s fixed now–thanks for your patience.

  9. Marion says:

    I am having the same problem. Is there a fix?

  10. Gregory Kranich says:

    It seems as though the Associate button is experiencing technical difficulties now.

  11. Colleen says:

    Not sure what’s up with Paypal–I have made a new button for the Associate Membership level and it works now, and I have tested each of the other buttons and all are working at present. Thanks for your patience.

  12. J. W. says:


    I am trying to register as a student, but the button does not seem to be working. I have tried to click the “Buy Now” under the student registration in Firefox, Chrome, and IE with no luck.

    Thank you, I hope to employ this curriculum during my student teaching!

  13. Victoria Hornik-Rosinski says:

    How do I obtain a password for the AMTAlistserve? or do I have to join somewhere?

  14. jklonowski says:

    I took a modeling workshop this summer and was told we had membership for one year with AMTA. How do I register as a member?

  15. Salena says:

    Will I need to wait until Monday to have access to the curriculum because it is a 3 day weekend?

  16. Susan Smith says:

    Please give me information on the “group rate” if 3 members of our department would like to be Associate Members. Specifically, what would the dollar amount be?

    • Colleen says:

      Unfortunately we do not have a group rate for groups of only three. Sorry. Five is the smallest group that qualifies for a discounted rate.

  17. Susan Smith says:

    I have joined as an Associate Member, but still cannot access “Members only” material even though I am logged in. What do I need to do?


    • Colleen says:

      Evidently you missed the automated membership confirmation email with the link you needed to click to activate your membership (sometimes it goes into people’s spam folder). i have manually activated your membership for you. If you log out and log back in you should be able to access all resources.

  18. Kyle Yancey says:

    Although I do have access to some resources, there are resources on this website that I can’t access. For instance, I can’t access any of the links on this page. Could you look and see if there is something wrong with my permissions?
