Get all students talking and thinking together about grade-level math.

Amplify Math, based on the highly-rated Illustrative Mathematics curriculum IM K–12 Math™️, is designed around the idea that a core math curriculum needs to serve 100 percent of students in accessing grade-level math every day. To that end, the program delivers: 

  • Engaging, discourse-rich math lessons that are easier to teach
  • Flexible, social problem-solving experiences both online and off
  • Real-time insights, data, and reporting that inform instruction 

Amplify Math Grades 6–8 and Algebra 1 are available to pilot starting July 2021.

Flexible social problem-solving experiences

Digital lessons should be powerful in their ability to surface student thinking and spark interesting and productive discussions. We’ve partnered with Desmos to bring this vision to life with our complete library of Amps—social, collaborative lessons powered by Desmos technology.

Intuitive and engaging student experience

The student experience is intuitive and engaging because the content and the tools are interesting and exciting. The digital experience provides students with plenty of opportunities to talk through their reasoning, work with their peers, and gain new understanding.

Powerful teaching and monitoring tools

Imagine knowing where your students are, what they think, what they might not get yet, and what needs to happen next. This is all possible with Amplify Math’s real-time insights, data, and reporting the drive performance for all learners.

Automatic, just-in-time supports

Our Power-ups provide just-in-time support at the point of use before activities for your students. Power-ups ensure we are giving all students—even the ones who might be three years behind in math, but only 15 minutes behind the day’s lesson—the chance to experience success in math. Not teaching online? They’re available in the Teacher Edition, too. Want to learn more? Visit our coming soon site.

Engaging lessons that are more teachable

Amplify Math makes productive discourse easier to facilitate and more accessible for students. The program provides teachers with easy-to-follow instructional supports that makes implementing a problem-based program more effective and enjoyable for both you and your students.

Math in the program is social and collaborative. Our digital experience is fun and dynamic, with plenty of opportunities for students to talk through their reasoning, work with their peers, and gain new understandings.

Learn about the benefits

What is problem-based learning?

What they say What they mean
Gradual release or traditional programs We include problem-based learning in our lessons. Problem-based learning activities are included as warm-ups and neither students nor teachers are given enough time to think flexibly or test their reasoning.
Problem-based programs We are problem-based. We offer fantastic supports for teachers, but the thoroughness of the writing can make them hard to enact in the classroom. The problems are real and interesting, but maybe not very relevant to students.
Amplify Math We make problem-based learning easier to lead and more accessible for students. We’d like to prove it to you. Try one of our Experience Kits.

Infusing narrative into the math classroom

All students ask “Why do I need to know this? When am I ever going to use this in the real world?” Amplify Math helps students make the connections with math and their everyday lives to help them see and appreciate the relevance of the math they’re figuring out in class. Throughout the units, students will be introduced to historical and current narratives that show the many places mathematics inhabits in our world and how the work they do in class connects to our history and their own reality.

Infusing math instruction with history and storytelling can contribute to more equitable and exciting experiences for students. Learn more about building connections through storytelling and how this approach allows students to see themselves in math.
