IM 6-8 Math: Teach & Learn *Virtual*

June 21 @ 9:00 am - June 23 @ 11:15 am

Gain first-hand experience and fluency with the IM curricula at this online implementation event led by an IM certified facilitator.

How can educators implement IM Math, a problem-based curriculum, building towards a world where all learners know, use, and enjoy mathematics? This online implementation event is designed to get educators ready to teach and learn within problem-based classrooms where student thinking is front and center. This series gives educators first-hand experience with and confidence in using the IM Math curriculum.

Learning Goals

  • Describe an instructional routine and how instructional routines help students:
    • play with mathematical ideas
    • learn by collaborating with each other
    • listen, respond to and value each other’s thinking
  • Prepare an instructional routine.
  • Identify opportunities for students to learn mathematical ideas through the experience of solving problems.
  • Describe the overarching design structure and the structure of a lesson and the purpose of each component.
  • Describe norms that build a positive, inclusive mathematical community.
  • Locate resources and opportunities to enhance access and challenge for students with disabilities and English learners.
  • Explain the purposes of different assessments within the curriculum.
  • Identify multiple opportunities for assessment within the curriculum.
  • Recognize the progression of understanding across the unit and how it is assessed.
  • Begin to plan a unit and a lesson using the progression of understanding; using student thinking to drive learning.
  • Trust the curriculum.
  • Describe how the curriculum supports mathematical language development for all students.
  • Explain how to use activity-specific opportunities to enhance access students have to the mathematics by supporting them with the language demands of a specific activity.
  • Describe how mathematical language routines are used throughout the curriculum to support students’ mathematical sense-making and communication.

Audience: Educators who have adopted IM 6-8 Math and are getting ready for implementing problem-based teaching and learning with IM.
