Math Resources

We are following the Illustrative Mathematics curriculum. Open Up Resources is one of the publishers that follows the curriculum that has student and parent resources.

i-Ready is an online assessment and instruction site that helps students with a path to proficiency and growth in reading and mathematics. It can either be student driven (based on diagnostic test to assess their skill levels) or teacher driven (assigned lessons that are aligned with the current curriculum)

Khan academy is a set of instructional videos that students and parents can watch at home for additional assistance. It includes practice questions and quizzes to assess the student's abilities.

Prodigy Game is an engaging online game that uses standards aligned mathematics to drive the games battles. It is adaptive to the students abilities and periodically checks their skills so the question difficulty changes with the student's growth.
