Learn how we support teachers in transforming classrooms into hives of activity, questioning, and debate.
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.
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.
Whether it’s for below-benchmark students or accelerated learners, we provide content-specific resources within lessons, from warm-up to cool down.
Discussion-filled classrooms beget deeper learning. Our materials encourage student communication and the development of problem-solving and reasoning skills.
Educators can easily prepare to recognize, analyze, and respond to common student struggles thanks to the scaffolding we provide with each lesson.
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.
Our programs use state standards as a foundation. All curricula receive quality reviews against acclaimed alignment rubrics (IMET, EQuIP), conducted by leading experts.
Our program is designed to elevate math practice – and success starts with supporting teachers with any necessary shifts.
We tailor professional learning and support recommendations to each district’s schedule, staffing, and delivery needs. In addition to our curriculum-embedded professional learning content, we offer:
On-site introduction to instructional routines, practices, and design of materials
Workshops devoted to modeling and supporting practice change.
Facilitation of peer-supported work, activating PLCs to build district capacity.
We meet you where you are on the digital continuum:
Digital editions for 1:1 classrooms
Affordable, high-quality print options available
An improved user experience and an enhanced focus on ELL supports (including a full Spanish version).
