Ready Mathematics

Ready Mathematics helps teachers create a rich classroom environment in which students at all levels become active, real-world problem solvers. Through teacher-led instruction, students develop mathematical reasoning, engage in discourse, and build strong mathematical habits. The program’s instructional framework supports educators as they strengthen their teaching practices and facilitates meaningful discourse that encourages all learners. Ready Mathematics:

  • Encourages students to develop a deeper understanding of mathematics concepts through the embedded Standards for Mathematical Practice.
  • Builds on students’ prior knowledge with lessons that make connections within and across grade levels and directly address the major focus of the grade.
  • Ready Mathematics 6–8 ©2020 provides additional features for supporting English Learners such as: 
    • English Language Development guidelines on scaffolding language use during instruction to benefit students at different levels of English proficiency.
    • Language routines that integrate language and mathematics.
    • Concept development activities that allow students of varying mathematical and English language abilities to build on familiar concepts.
