IM Professional Learning

Builds teacher confidence as they prepare to implement the curriculum
Moving to a problem-based mathematics curriculum represents a significant practice shift for many educators. IM Certified professional learning facilitators guide teachers through the meaningful paradigm shifts that lead to improved student outcomes.

Increases educator effectiveness and boosts student engagement
IM professional Learning helps teachers develop the skills and confidence to implement standards-aligned instruction, ensure curricular coherence within and across grade levels, facilitate meaningful mathematics discussions, and implement instructional routines that engage students and improve their learning.

Supports teachers with sustainable and scalable classroom strategies
IM Certified professional learning is tailored to meet teachers where they are on the learning continuum, allowing educators at every level to develop their skills over time. 

“IM K–5 math curriculum is needed right now because there is not a program that currently aligns to the math standards and practices while looking at coherence across the grade levels like IM is planning. In addition, they are using high leverage research based math teaching practices, including professional learning for teachers, reflection questions for teachers and coaches, and number routines that build upon each other through the K–5 progression. They are intentional about the visual models they are using at each grade level to help build a deep understanding of the math concepts.”
