Personalized learning

Imagine Math is a rigorous, standards-aligned math program that personalizes learning for each student. Students are immersed in a language-rich curriculum that uses data to scaffold concepts for each learner, ultimately​ leading to deep understanding and college- and career-readiness. Because the system is adaptive, students learn in their zone of proximal development with the right degree of challenge. Imagine Math was intentionally created to ​support the Universal Design for Learning with instruction that is supported by meaningful practice.Learn more about the anatomy of an​ Imagine Math lesson.​​Take a look at our pathways and standards alignment guides.

Proactive Intervention

Imagine Math monitors students’ progress throughout each problem. Students are sometimes hesitant to seek help, even in situations where productive struggle might be turning into frustration. Imagine Math’s Proactive Intervention system prompts struggling students with a reminder that there’s a live teacher ready to help—ensuring students feel supported and confident in their learning.

Imagine Math supports all learners including English learners (ELs) by providing supports and scaffolds that encourage success in math learning. Research has proven Imagine Math is effective for helping ELs across the nation improve in math proficiency. Some of the supports incorporated into Imagine Math include:

  • Rigorous tasks including journaling opportunities and application tasks
  • Productive struggle supported by math helps, online teachers, and proactive intervention
  • Multiple representations such as models, symbols, and diagrams
  • Academic language supported through journaling, application tasks, and online teachers trained in facilitating mathematical discourse.
  • Academic language supported through journaling, application tasks, and online teachers trained in facilitating mathematical discourse.

Donations to charity. Students that use Imagine Math 3–8 work individually and collaboratively to earn points for special events or select charities, to donate their points to such as Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

Classroom goals. The Classroom Goal option encourages student collaboration to work towards a common goal, empowering students.

Imagine Math 3–8 is driven by intentional assessments to aid educators in their classroom instruction, connecting assessment and instruction for all students. The system of benchmark, interim and formative assessments personalize content that challenges students in their zone of proximal development.

Benchmark assessments
The benchmark assessments—with the Quantile® Framework for Mathematics—provide assessments that teachers can utilize.
These assessments:

Provide flexible grouping decisions for instruction
Shows growth measurement over time, individually and in groups
Provide rich data to inform instruction
Monitor student progress over the school year
Are fully customizable to a school’s need

Formative assessments
Imagine Math 3–8 quizzes before and after assigned lessons:

Measure student understanding and performance of a concept
Enable scaffolded lessons to be inserted into a student’s pathway
Are viewable in real-time for teachers to inform instruction as needed

Quantile Framework

The Quantile® Framework for Mathematics is a universal scale for both assessment and ​instruction that is widely accepted for interpreting student performance.

Imagine Math assessments ​are aligned to Quantile measures and provide educators with a reliable measure ​of student readiness to learn specific concepts. It can also be used as a tool to​ tailor instruction. This scale customizes Imagine Math pathways and provides rich data to inform instruction.
