The IM Elementary Math beta pilot brings conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and application. Instructional routines, representations, and math tools are carefully utilized to help students develop an understanding of mathematical concepts and procedures.
Grade-level progressions and learning trajectories
Every routine, activity, and lesson has a place in the mathematical story across units and grade levels based on standards and research-based learning trajectories.
Through innovative staged centers, cool-downs with clear pathways to address student understanding, monitoring sheets, and section quizzes teachers are equipped to easily monitor student progress.
Embedded teacher learning
Teacher reflection questions, embedded curriculum narratives, and a PLC framework, continually support teacher learning.
Extensive curriculum-aligned professional learning
Teachers feel confident and ready to implement the curriculum with integrated professional learning that supports teachers to develop, refine, and reflect on instructional practices.
