2020–2021 Amplify Math Field Trials

Hello math rock star! Amplify is looking for educators to field test in-development 6–8 and Algebra 1 materials.

We’re working on a game-changing K–12 blended program that pairs problem-based learning with social, collaborative activities and we’re looking forward to sharing some of it with you! No matter what scenario you’re teaching in, the Amplify Math field trial materials will work for you.

I’m Interested

The Amplify Math difference:

  • High-quality content: Built on the highly-rated Illustrative Mathematics curriculum, Amplify Math makes problem-based instruction easy to teach and engaging to learn. 
  • A focus on humanizing math: By leveraging great storytelling, Amplify Math’s narratives highlight diverse mathematicians and stories, allowing all students to see themselves in the content and connect with the math.

  • Social, collaborative activities: To put productive discourse at the center of instruction, print and digital lessons ask students to reason mathematically and justify their thinking together. 
  • A unique partnership with Desmos: We’ve partnered with Desmos to create Amps—our library of social, collaborative digital lessons powered by Desmos technology. Amps live at the intersection of content and tools—students work together through captivating problems and scenarios while teachers gain insight into student reasoning in real time.

Signs you might be an amazing field trial teacher:

  • You love math.
  • You know young people are capable of just about anything.
  • You understand that giving candid feedback can help the next generation of students redefine what amazing looks like.
  • We are looking for a diverse set of classrooms and districts, with a variety of technology used (remote, hybrid, 1:1, blended—you name it!) and demographics (urban, suburban, rural).

 

If you think you fit the bill, let us know. You can even skip the fine print and get in touch by clicking below.

Amplify will collect feedback in a number of ways:

  • Regular quick surveys
  • Mid-point surveys and interviews (virtual)
  • End of field trial surveys and interviews (virtual)

 

Participants may be invited to participate in in-person interviews and meetups, but they will not be required. Amplify may ask to visit your classroom if possible.

 

We will also ask that Field Trial teachers administer pre- and post-unit assessments provided by Amplify. Student scores may be used in marketing published by Amplify but no identifying information would be shared.
