Learning List has updated the original reviews of Imagine Math. Learning List’s review process enables publishers to submit content updates and updates to their product data or technology infrastructure for re-review when substantive changes have been made. Imagine Learning submitted updates to content in Fall of 2018 and Learning List’s alignment reports have been updated to reflect new citations and updated alignment percentages.
Imagine Math provides supplemental, online mathematics programs for grades 2 through high school. Resources support self-paced instruction in remediation and intervention programs. Across grade levels, Imagine Math’s adaptive software adjusts content to meet individual learning needs, provides immediate corrective feedback, and motivates students through a system of extrinsic rewards. Learning List recently reviewed Imagine Math’s resources for high school Geometry and Integrated Math I & II, which are described in Appendix A of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). [Read more…]
IMP uses a problem-based approach to instruction that grows out of the work of George Polya (How to Solve It, 1949). Students learn how to understand problems mathematically, develop a solution strategy, implement the strategy, and evaluate the reasonableness of its solution.
Content is organized in units that focus on a situation that provides a central, novel problem that lacks a readily apparent solution. Units take six to eight weeks to complete and integrate content from other subject areas. For example, Edgar Allan Poe’s short story, “The Pit and the Pendulum,” provides the context for a unit addressing statistical inference and mathematical modeling. Each week of the unit, students work on an open-ended, engaging Problem of the Week, or POW, and smaller, related problems that address concepts and skills integral to solving the overarching unit problem. Through their work, students discover the strategies needed to solve the larger problem.
