Welcome to a new school year! The K-5 Illustrative Mathematics Consortium would like to welcome you to their first meeting. Please save the date for the first virtual meeting to be held Monday, November 22nd from 3:45 - 4:45.

One of the goals of this Consortium is to help educators navigate the glows and woes with implementation of the Illustrative Math K-5 resource in order to maximize its potential for student learning across the state.  They are looking forward to the collaborative work of our collective members this year as educators navigate the ongoing residual challenges from Covid 19 and the first year of implementation of IM. As a Consortium, they have been meeting and collaborating with educators of grades 6-8 since 2017, the first year of implementation for 6-8 Illustrative Mathematics. As this is the first year of the K-5 IM resource, they are excited to include the elementary community.

The challenges this year are greater than ever with many questions around unfinished learning and meeting the needs of our learners while ensuring focus on grade level content.The first meeting will be an opportunity for Illustrative Math K-5 users across the state to begin the conversation for collaborating and sharing best practices for the 2021-2022 school year.  This initial session is open to grades K-5 coaches and district leaders who are implementing the Illustrative Math resource.   

During this meeting, educators will reflect upon the implementation of the Illustrative Math resource this fall, continue to learn about available Illustrative Math resources, as well as collaborate in looking ahead at implementing Illustrative Math throughout the rest of the school year.  If you are using Illustrative Math in grades K-5 and can contribute to or benefit from collaborative work around implementation, you are encouraged join this productive session!  

The meeting will be held from 3:45 - 4:45 pm on Monday, November 22nd via google meet. 

If you plan on attending this meeting, please complete this form to RSVP for the November  CT Illustrative Math Consortium K-5 Meeting by Wednesday, November 17th.

The ATOMIC Mission is to ensure that every Connecticut student receives world-class education in mathematics by providing vision, leadership and support to the K-16 mathematics community and by providing every teacher of mathematics the opportunity to grow professionally.
