The Derby Public Schools Curriculum Department has adopted Ready Classroom Mathematics for our elementary schools. Ready Classroom Mathematics is a comprehensive core mathematics program that makes math accessible to all students. Everything works together to support teachers and empower students to connect to mathematics in new ways. The program includes:

  • An instructional design that allows students to take ownership of their learning
  • Rigorous practice opportunities that build students’ conceptual understanding and procedural fluency
  • In-depth reports that enable instructional decisions so teachers can help students reach their greatest potential

As part of the Ready Classroom Mathematics experience, we have an adaptive Diagnostic and embedded classroom assessments that provide teachers with data and instructional resources to support the needs of all students.

We will also utilize the iReady Personalized Learning Path for each student. Digital lessons are sequenced to support students’ strengths and areas for growth. Each student will begin Online Instruction in the domain in which they placed lowest on the Diagnostic assessment. Students’ paths may be adjusted after subsequent Diagnostic assessments. Students’ progress will also be monitored by their teachers to determine if further adjustments or small group/individual hands-on activities are needed to address misconceptions.
