IM K-5 Math: Teach & Learn

August 9 @ 8:30 am - August 10 @ 3:30 pm

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

What is a problem-based curriculum and how do I implement it in my classroom? This two-day implementation event is designed to familiarize teachers with the problem-based lesson structure used in the IM K–5 Math™️ curriculum, and to explore specific resources in the materials to support this implementation. Teachers will experience a lesson, investigate and reflect on content and language routines, explore various supports, understand assessment materials, and begin to use student thinking as a vehicle for productive planning. After this training, teachers will be ready to begin using IM K–5 Math in their classrooms.

Learning Goals

Part 1

  • Articulate the structure of a lesson and the purpose of each component in helping to thread key mathematical ideas.
  • Leverage the structures in the curriculum to invite and engage all students in grade-level math.
  • Understand the significance of a problem-based math community.
  • Navigate the partner platform to find and explore a grade-level lesson plan.

Part 2

  • Summarize the structure and value of instructional routines. (Mathematical Language Routines & Math Warm-up Routines)
  • Describe strategies for successful implementation of Math Warm-up Routines.
  • Explain the components within and outside of the lesson plan that support all learners.
  • Navigate the partner platform to locate lesson plans and additional components.

Part 3

  • Articulate an asset-focused approach to analyzing student work connected to learning goals.
  • Identify opportunities to assess student understanding and progress toward learning goals: During a lesson / At the beginning and end of the unit / Across the unit
  • Describe how centers are organized and the role they play in supporting fluency goals.

Target Audience: Teachers who are about to implement IM K-5 Math.

Additional Audiences: Coaches, principals, para-educators, and others supporting IM implementation.
