Imagine Math

Implementation Essentials

Program Overview

Imagine Math is a program that can be used throughout the entire school year to help students progress through standards-based lessons on their own individualized pathway. It can be used for students in grades PreK-8, as well as those enrolled in Geometry and Algebra I. Below are some helpful tips for implementing the program, along with the appropriate resources to assist you in using it with your students.

Imagine Learning University

One of the best places to learn about Imagine Math is Imagine Learning University, a self-service education website designed specifically for busy educators. You can easily select courses that are relevant to your needs to work at your own pace through several series of 2-5 minute how-to videos and other training materials that will help you:


· Learn the essentials of program management and how to facilitate student sessions.

· Inform and enhance classroom instruction with the help of real-time data.

· Facilitate student success through innovative use of digital activities and offline materials.


You can print certificates of participation to count toward professional development credits. Please note: if it’s your first time using Imagine University, you will need to create a new account even if you have an existing login to other Imagine Learning products.

Account Info

Administrators, teachers, and students can access the program at math.imaginelearning.com or through ClassLink/Clever.

Student Launch

Be sure to introduce the program to your students and set up the expectations of usage, journaling, and motivation before launching. You can use the student videos found in the Student Experience course in Imagine Learning University.

Benchmark One

The first thing the students will do on the program is take a Benchmark Assessment. Provide Benchmark One in a testing environment. Remember, this provides the student’s Quantile measure and instructional grade level.

Think 30 Goal

The goal is to have students PASS 30 lessons before state testing.

Usage

To stay on track with the Think 30 goal, students should use an average of 60-90 minutes per week, completing 2-3 lessons per week. This can be a combination of in-school and at-home work.

Live Teacher Support

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have another certified Math teacher in the room to assist your students, on-demand? We've got you covered! With Imagine Math, students have access to live, state-certified Math teachers at the click of a button.


Our teachers coach students to develop strategic thinking and develop the skills of Mathematical Practice. You + Imagine Math Live Teachers = Sucess!

Monitoring

Teachers should be checking reports weekly to see who is on track, and intervene with students who are struggling. Please use the Overview Report to monitor student usage on a weekly basis.

Motivation

Motivation is key to success in Imagine Math! Please consider a motivation contest or activity to push students toward success.

Journals

Working out problems on paper is critical. The Journal holds students accountable for their work, and allows you to view their thought process. Journaling is to be incorporated for every question in the Guided Learning section within Imagine Math lessons. Be sure to model and practice journaling with your students multiple times before they take the first Benchmark – it is critical that students completely understand this process before getting started on the program.
