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.
Inspire active discussion, develop a growth mindset
Student Spotlight lessons are anchored by series of short videos in which a team of students share their thinking. How did they approach the task? What was the same and different about their approaches?
Partnering with LearnZillion means students and teachers have instant access to these peer discourse examples as they build, solidify, and practice their conceptual development.
It's also a great way to harness peer power!
