All Green on All EdReports Gateways
My students’ mathematical thinking blows my mind! Each and every student in my classroom can explain their answer. Their strategies look different because they all approach and solve problems in different ways, but they can use words, diagrams, and equations to explain their answer.
Tabitha E. Grade 3 Teacher, MO
The curriculum facilitates productive struggle for our learners, and teachers have been excited to shift their instruction from being the ‘sage on the stage’ to the ‘guide on the side.’
Corrine Williams, secondary math specialist, Evergreen Public Schools, WA
IM 9–12 Math has spurred a rapid shift in how I go about teaching and learning mathematics. Furthermore, my students have developed a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts through making meaning of their conversations with each other and myself about the topic at hand.
