Supporting Equity: What We’re Learning at Illustrative Mathematics
Saturday, April 4th, 11:15am -12:30pm - Session II
Illustrative Mathematics (IM) is writing K–12 curriculum that supports problem-based instruction and fosters student discourse. Such features are recommended by proponents of culturally responsive teaching, but also risk perpetuating structural inequities if not supported by appropriate professional learning. We trace the IM journey, describing what we have learned and what we have yet to learn about designing curriculum and professional learning to increase equity in mathematics education.
