IM K-5 Math™: A Milestone on the Path to Mathematical Proficiency
Date: Friday, Sept. 24, 2021
Time: 8:30-9:30 am CST via Zoom
Presented by William McCallum, Illustrative Mathematics, CEO
What began with an e-mail in 2015 is now a fully-realized core mathematics curriculum for grades K–12, accompanied by tightly integrated professional learning. In this session, educators will learn how coherent mathematical progressions across grades and a problem-based instructional model informed the development of IM K–5 Math™, and how IM K-5 Math™ addresses the unique needs of elementary teachers and students with supports for culturally responsive pedagogy and a balanced approach to development of concepts and fluency. We will also look to the work remaining on our journey to a world where all learners know, use, and enjoy mathematics.
