Open Source Illustrative Mathematics (IM) Pilot

The goal of the Mathematically Connected Communities (MC2) two-year Illustrative Mathematics (IM) Pilot, funded by the Public Education Department, is to understand how high-quality open source mathematics curriculum can be effectively implemented in middle and high schools. Our selection process ensured representation from across the state of New Mexico, a mix of large and small campuses, both urban and rural settings, and schools committed to full implementation.
