The design structure at the heart of the curriculum
We support strategic instruction
Discussion and problem-solvingOur easy-to-use slides and teaching notes empower teachers to shift math classes from workbook time to discussion-and-problem-solving time. Guidance is built into every lesson, providing teachers with in-context professional development.
Support for differentiationWe make it easy for teachers to provide differentiated instruction. Each lesson, which includes a warm-up, activities, a cool-down, and practice problems, can be assigned to small groups and individual students.
Digital interactives powered by Geogebra and DesmosInteractives bring tasks to life, allowing students to explore real-world and mathematical contexts.
Integrated digital assessments
We’ve integrated digitized unit assessments and practice items, giving teachers auto-scored formative feedback on student mastery. At the same time, students get more practice with tech-enabled questions.
"LearnZillion’s versatility provides opportunity and access to Illustrative Mathematics. The awesome digital applets enhance the student experience by encouraging unlimited trials and manipulation."
- Andrea Winkleblech, Instructional Math Coach, Laurel Middle School
Realize significant savings over self-printing: We provide high-quality student workbooks delivered directly to your district or school. Each consumable student workbook covers three units within a grade level.
The transition to using a new platform should be easy for educators. We work closely with districts to support the effective implementation of the LearnZillion Illustrative Mathematics 6–8 Math curriculum. The year-long engagement provides teachers, leaders, and coaches on-site, virtual, and on-demand support to instill confidence and insure fidelity.
