What Sets Open Up Resources 6–8 Math Apart?

It fosters mathematical literacy for students.

Our signature mathematical language routines (MLRs) offer detailed guidance for developing students into mathematical thinkers. Facilitate and assess students’ ability to communicate mathematical thinking verbally, visually, and in writing.

The teacher materials facilitate daily professional learning.

Every lesson plan contains topic-specific professional learning resources. Our materials speak intelligently and professionally to educators, meeting teachers where they are in their practice and advancing them.

The topic-specific and activity-specific differentiation is groundbreaking.

Whether it’s for below-benchmark students or accelerated learners, we provide content-specific resources within lessons, from warm-up to cool down.

It fosters the 5 Practices for Orchestrating Productive Mathematics Discussions.

Discussion-filled classrooms beget deeper learning. Our materials encourage student communication and the development of problem-solving and reasoning skills.

Excited Student Discussion

Teachers adore our ‘Anticipated Misconceptions’ for prep.

Educators can easily prepare to recognize, analyze, and respond to common student struggles thanks to the scaffolding we provide with each lesson.

We’ve raised the bar for ELL support.

We raise the bar for the integration of English Language Learner scaffolds in every lesson, with topic- and activity-specific guidance. We’ve included a 1st Instance of every mathematical language routine in each course. The 1st instance provides a detailed description of the support and implementation of the activity.

It’s tailor-built to standards.

Our programs use state standards as a foundation. All curricula receive quality reviews against acclaimed alignment rubrics (IMET, EQuIP), conducted by leading experts.

Quality Professional Learning
