About the curriculum

Spark discussion, perseverance, and enjoyment of mathematics.
IM Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 are problembased core curricula rooted in content and practice standards to foster learning and achievement for all. Students learn by doing math, solving problems in mathematical and realworld contexts, and constructing arguments using precise language. Teachers can shift their instruction and facilitate student learning with highleverage routines that guide them in understanding and making connections between concepts and procedures.

Intentional lesson design that promotes mathematical growth.
IM Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 lessons are designed with a focus on independent, group, and wholeclass instruction, building mathematical understanding and fluency with all students. Teachers will also use Warmups and Cooldowns to help guide lesson pacing and planning.

The purpose and intended use of the Algebra 1 Supports Course.
Students who struggle in Algebra 1 are more likely to struggle in subsequent math courses and experience more adverse outcomes. The Algebra 1 Extra Support Materials are designed to help students who need additional support in their Algebra 1 course. Each Algebra 1 Extra Support Materials lesson is associated with a lesson in the Algebra 1 course. The intention is that students experience each Algebra 1 Extra Support Materials lesson before its associated Algebra 1 lesson. The Algebra 1 Extra Support Materials lesson helps students learn or remember a skill or concept that is needed to access and find success with the associated Algebra 1 lesson.
