Investigative Instruction
Hands-on exploration of real-world applications that allow student discovery of mathematics concepts while they make connections between different mathematical ideas.
Performance-Based Assessment
Evaluation based on what students know, understand, and show they can do.
Communication Skills
Curriculum that includes discussion and reflection as an integral piece of every step of instruction.
Alignment to NCTM Focal Points
In September 2006, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics released the Curriculum Focal Points, which define the most important mathematical topics for each grade level. IMPACT Mathematics has been thoroughly reviewed by a panel of mathematicians, teachers, and math coaches to ensure that it supports and aligns with the NCTM Curriculum Focal Points for grades 6-8.
