About the curriculum

  • Combining the power of standards alignment, problem-based learning, and research-based pedagogy.

    The IM K–5 Math curriculum is designed and organized based on researched principles and learning trajectories, as well as our experience with how teachers use materials, to provide teachers the tools they need to promote student success.

    The IM K–5 Math curriculum supports mathematics teaching and learning with coherently sequenced materials based on the standards and researched learning trajectories.

    There are three overarching and interconnected principles—learning, teaching, and equity—that are foundational to everything we create, and guide our understanding of mathematics teaching and learning. These overarching principles inform our more specific design principles to support student and teacher learning and usability.

IM Certified™ curriculum and professional learning is coming in 2021!

The K-5 team is hard at work applying IM design principles for curriculum development to the creation of a complete, coherent K–5 curriculum aligned to content and practice standards.
