A problem-based instructional framework supports teachers in structuring lessons, so students are the ones doing the problem solving to learn the mathematics. The activities and routines give teachers opportunities to see what students know and what they can notice before having concepts and procedures explained to them.
Overall DNA of the instructional design
Each lesson starts with a learning goal and a warm-up, followed by problem-based instructional activities facilitated by the teacher (including individual and small-group worktime), and concludes with a synthesis and cool-down to solidify and apply student learning.
Focus, Rigor, and Coherence Across Units, Lessons, and Activities
Imagine Learning Illustrative Mathematics continues to develop tools in response to teacher feedback that really put students first, right at the center of the curriculum. Examples include Digital Centers, which allow students to play math-based games, and Task Statements, launched in 2021, which let students input their responses for class activities and give teachers valuable insights not just into what students are thinking but how they are thinking.
A change we’ve seen in recent years is that parents and families are more engaged than ever in trying to support their learners, so we’re developing resources to help them do just that, including family support videos, which give families the opportunity to see what's going on inside the math classroom—such as vocabulary and concepts—and take part in activities with their students to reinforce learning.
Students are really engaged by the new Inspire Math videos that Imagine Learning has created this past year. These videos expand on unit content and bring it to life for students, showcasing the math in a real-world, engaging context.
Imagine Learning Illustrative Mathematics offers both formative and summative assessments that empower teachers to measure student understanding and progress of learning goals within the instructional design. The program includes a number of features to make this process easier:
Teachers can provide timely feedback through assignable items and better inform instruction.
Students have tools that promote ownership and accountability for learning.
Assessments are available in print and digital formats for equity and access in all instructional models.
Embedded options for assessment are provided throughout each unit, section, and lesson.
Imagine Learning Illustrative Mathematics comes ready to go, offering a turnkey solution that saves teachers time in planning and instruction to maximize positive student outcomes.
