Preparing to Teach Ready Mathematics

Equips educators to launch successful Ready Mathematics implementations and begin to make connections between the program, the Standards for Mathematical Practice, and the NCTM Effective Teaching Practices.

Developing Mathematical Thinkers through Instructional Routines

Educators go deeper in examining how to use the Ready Mathematics Think–Share–Compare routine to support productive student discourse for all learners.

Leading a Ready Mathematics Implementation I

Introduces leaders to strategies for identifying observable markers of effective mathematics instruction and to practices that support educators in selecting appropriate program components, preparing for instruction, and establishing routines to facilitate meaningful discourse.

Tailored Support

Tailored Support is planned collaboratively with you to provide what you need to meet your goals by addressing key areas of professional development. Our professional development specialists consult with educators to select appropriate content and create customized agendas.

Digital Learning Extensions

Digital Learning Extensions (DLEs) are a flexible online complement to and extension of your onsite Ready Mathematics and iReady Professional Development program. DLEs are short courses and videos that highlight and align to NCTM’s Effective Mathematics Teaching Practices.

Sequencing Student Ideas to Deepen Mathematical Reasoning

Educators analyze student work samples and build their teaching practice for selecting, sequencing, sharing, and connecting student-generated strategies to advance established mathematical goals.

Making Mathematics Accessible through Purposeful Questioning

Helps educators refine their Think–Share–Compare routine through effective questioning practices and facilitate rich mathematical conversations that engage all students.

Leading a Ready Mathematics Implementation II

Prepares leaders who have been using Ready Mathematics and iReady for at least one year to support a school culture that fosters a growth mindset among students and educators.
