Equitable Teaching Practices in IM K–12 Math

by Tina Cardone The vision of Illustrative Mathematics is to create a world where learners know, use, and enjoy mathematics. This raises the question: Which learners? And what role do the authors of a curriculum play in shaping the experience? There are multiple spheres of influence that impact the experiences students have in their math... Read More

English Learners and Distance Learning: Math Language Routines

by Vanessa Cerrahoglu, Jennifer Wilson, and Liz Ramirez We envision creating a world where learners know, use, and enjoy mathematics. Knowing and using math goes beyond calculating and evaluating. We create purposeful opportunities for students to engage in sense-making and use language to negotiate meaning with their peers. This calls for a language-rich environment where... Read More

Access Archived Blueprints

The blueprints represent an early effort to show how the standards could be arranged into courses. They are not a complete curriculum, and have been superseded by the Illustrative Mathematics curriculum, which modified them somewhat. Since some users have continued to find them useful, we have archived them here. The work was funded by the William and Flora Hewlett foundation.

 

Access Archived Fractions Progression Videos

We have created a Fractions Progression Module consisting of videos paired with illustrative tasks to help teachers better understand the development of concepts and skills around fractions from grades 3-5.

The fractions progression is one in a set of documents describing the progression of mathematical ideas in each of the domains in the Standards.
