We want to share our deepest gratitude for the work each of you has been doing to protect yourselves, your families, your students, and your school communities, as you face hard decisions about how to support students while also reducing our close contact with one another. Each of us faces unique situations and there are no easy solutions for any of the various components of supporting children that each of us are charged with.
At IM, we want to help everyone who supports students to learn during this time. The IM blog (illustrativemathematics.blog) will be our starting point for everything we can offer. In the coming days, as we shift staff off of other projects and focus our energies here, these posts and resources will come online. (Items on this list will continue to become live links as posts and assets become available.)
