About this Learning Opportunity

Introduction to JUMP Math when Teaching the New Math Curriculum, Part 1
If you have heard about JUMP Math and wish to learn more of what it is all about, then this 2-part session is for you! In Part 1, we explore: our founder, how JUMP Math came to be, the pedagogy, and evidence of impact in research on student achievement when implemented, and then the rest of the session will be about the suite of resources that are “JUMP Math” and how to find and use these. We offer many pieces: Mental Math resources, Bonus Questions, extra Problem-Solving lessons, Assessments, Digital Lesson Slides, Student AP books and our lesson plans themselves. We also have Curriculum Support Packs that allow teachers to find all they need (in one place) to teach the new curriculum, and Essential Lesson Packs that aid educators to assist students overcome some of the learning loss experienced these past few pandemic years.
