Tucson, AZ – July 17, 2019 — Illustrative Mathematics (IM), the author and developer of the highly-rated IM Certified 6–8 Math curriculum and IM Certified professional learning, announced that IM 9–12 Math and aligned professional learning (PL) are available today. Educators can access the curriculum for free or enhanced, digitally or in print, via its certified partners. A demo of the high school curriculum is available here.
The IM Certified high school curriculum was written with the same pedagogy, organization, and structure as the highly rated IM Certified 6–8 Math. Educators can expect the same thoughtful alignment to standards, problem-based approach, and engaging real-world and mathematical examples.
“With IM 9–12 Math, teachers have the tools to guide students toward conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and the ability to apply the mathematics they learn,” notes Bill McCallum, President of Illustrative Mathematics. “It was also very important to us to make sure students are not left behind in their first year of algebra, and so we created a full year of Algebra 1 supports, the first of their kind, that are tightly aligned to the curriculum to help teachers keep students who have unfinished learning engaged with grade-level material.”
Teachers are fully supported by the aligned IM Certified Professional Learning offering, known for being an engaging experience that creates an effective environment for mastering the curriculum from day one.
IM Certified 6–8 Math and IM 9–12 Math are available through IM Certified partners Kendall Hunt, LearnZillion, and McGraw-Hill Education. Each partner provides unique benefits to ensure districts have the flexibility to choose the experience that best meets their unique needs without compromising on IM’s high-quality curriculum. The designation of “IM Certified” ensures the curriculum includes the latest enhancements made by the author, is aligned to IM’s philosophy, mission, and standards, and that a portion of every adoption goes back to the ongoing improvement of the curriculum. Plus, the professional learning is developed by IM’s expert-led authoring team and delivered by IM Certified Facilitators.
