Encouraging Independent Math Thinkers

Blended Mathematics Curriculum

The Challenge

Plummeting test scores set Oregon’s Redmond School District in search of instruction that would help students progress to proficiency on new state standards. The district’s interim “stopgap” solution was burdensome and time consuming and lacked the coherence and rigor they knew was required. Ready Mathematics curriculum was their hands-down choice, offering all their students the rigor they knew they wanted within a format that would engage young learners.

 

Our Philosophy

We believe that all students can not only become standards-proficient but also engaged mathematicians. Solid mathematics routines must be integrated into instruction to enable students to be both strong, independent thinkers and active contributors in classroom discourse. Story problems with real-world application introduce topics and the teacher assumes the role of discussion facilitator, leaving much of the explaining, questioning, and debating to the students themselves.

 

Our Solution

Ready Mathematics is a rigorous, yet reachable mathematics program that, when layered with iReady, offers a fully integrated blended learning program. This innovative solution was built from scratch by a print and digital development team to align to the standards and to work together seamlessly. When Ready is implemented with iReady as a complementary digital program, teachers get robust data to guide their instruction, while each student receives a personalized online instruction path to complement the instruction and practice in Ready Mathematics.
