How Kiddom and Illustrative Mathematics by Kendall Hunt Work Together
Let's dive into some of those areas where together, Kiddom and Kendall Hunt can support better teaching and learning experiences from the Illustrative Mathematics curriculum.
1. Real-World Problems, Precisely Argued
The Illustrative Mathematics curriculum guides students to learn by doing math – solving problems and explaining their solutions using precise language.
The Kiddom platform helps this come to life by offering a variety of problem types – from multiple choice to short answer to multi-select and more – which allows students to solve problems and present answers in a variety of ways.
In addition, Kiddom has a number of tools that help empower discourse-driven instruction, including the ability for teachers and students to submit audio, video, and written communication, assignments, and assignment feedback. This allows students to work on constructing their arguments across a variety of formats.
2. Math For Me, For Us, and For All Of Us
IM lessons include independent, group, and whole class instruction and learning, giving students the opportunity to gain understanding and fluency across a variety of scenarios.
Kiddom’s platform has designed supports to enhance each of these scenarios. Individual students manage their own assignments via Kiddom’s timeline screen where students can see all the instruction and assessment that they’re responsible for.
With Kiddom, teachers can put students in groups that can communicate and collaborate. In addition, with chat and announcements, teachers can push messages to the whole class.
3. Full Service for Teachers
By choosing Illustrative Mathematics by Kendall Hunt paired with Kiddom’s platform, you’re getting the best of all worlds. Kendall Hunt offers a variety of professional learning options, along with an online community of IM teachers designed to make adopting and succeeding with the curriculum easier. Kendall Hunt also receives real-time curriculum updates as they’re made so you always have the most up-to-date materials.
With Kiddom, teachers have access to the curriculum in a dynamic, digital format that allows many options to customize the lessons for online or in-person, in their own unique way.
High-quality curriculum is one of the most powerful tools we can bring into our classrooms. And this last year has shown us that these materials need to be able to be seamlessly deployed in any learning environment. We’re excited to offer another great curriculum option that can come to life on the Kiddom platform.
