Welcome to the new Illustrative Mathematics blog!

In continually moving forward with our vision of creating a world where learners know, use and enjoy mathematics, the Illustrative Mathematics team is so excited to announce the launch of our official blog!

Our blog will be a space where our math community of learners can focus on improving the teaching and learning of mathematics. We’ll feature posts from the authors of the Illustrative Mathematics 6-8 Math curriculum (and forthcoming HS curriculum!) and from teachers, coaches and administrators in our community sharing their school and classroom experiences. We envision the blog as a place for all to engage in productive discourse and pose questions that help push and support one another’s thinking.

Each month the blog will have a different theme. For example, this month you can look forward to learning more about an important instructional planning structure. These posts will have videos, first-hand accounts from teachers and coaches, and resources to support implementing this planning structure in your own practice.

To nurture a continuous conversation, we invite you to subscribe to our blog, engage in discussions in the comments section, and share the pieces that impact your work. Have a topic you would like to see featured? Post it in the comments below! We look forward to fostering a space where we can work together to create a world where all learners, including ourselves, can know, use and enjoy mathematics in a meaningful way.




Our next published article will be coming shortly. In the meantime, check out our featured archived posts below and subscribe today for updates.

  1. I have been doing a lot of reading on the new IM 6-8 math curriculum and am excited to give it a try. In mid January my plan is to try grade 6 unit 6, Expressions and Equations. From everything I’ve seen and read, the materials look engaging and easily adaptable for starting mid year. Thank you for this new curriculum tool.

  2. Thank you so much Diane for reading the materials and trying them out in your classroom! We would love to hear about your experience with the 6th grade unit. If you are on Twitter, you can share using the hashtag #LearnWithIM and tag @IllustrateMath in your post.
