The online portal offers 600-plus resources, including training videos, implementation tips, planning tools, best practice examples, and more for using Ready Mathematics together with i‑Ready® as a blended core learning program. The resources, which are free for all Ready users, help educators get up and running quickly, plan and pace their lessons, learn instructional best practices, and leverage i‑Ready data to guide their instruction.
“Ready Central was created to meet the unique needs of our educators,” said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates. “The portal's wide range of support and professional learning resources helps teachers, principals, and administrators ensure successful implementation and ongoing use of Ready Mathematics as part of their blended learning program.”
Ready Central's resources include videos, downloadable and shareable documents, email templates, and articles, all of which are tagged for easy searching on the part of the user. Filters such as role, grade, state, and resource type and format allow easy access to the most relevant information when they need it. In addition to aiding in the implementation of Ready Mathematics, the resources can help educators encourage mathematical discourse, use data with fidelity, communicate with parents, and plan their lessons.
