Constructivist Approach

Using the CRA approach, we provide a powerful, interactive curriculum that encourages your students to rely on critical thinking, compelling reflection, and collaborative exploration within each scope.

Intentional Discourse

Our program promotes collaboration, listening, and expression in a variety of styles through purposeful math discussions that broaden your students’ mindsets and encourage educational growth.

5E + IA in Action

The 5E+IA learning model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate, Intervention, and Acceleration) is designed to enhance STEM education through math concepts found in our everyday world while being compatible with Math Workshop and Guided Math.

Real-World Exploration

Through open-ended and cross-dimensional tasks, we encourage your students to explore a wide range of mathematical approaches in various contexts.

Features & Benefits

  • Flexible 5E + Intervention & Acceleration Learning Model
  • C-R-A
  • Real-world tasks
  • Virtual manipulatives
  • Interactive games
  • Spanish translation

Explore Our Virtual Interactives

Not every school has access to math manipulatives or enough to support all learners. With virtual manipulatives and PhET Simulations, teacher can enhance equity, empower learning at home, and delight digital natives. From fraction bars to base ten blocks, students can use these digital tools with drag and drop controls to problem solve and continue CRA (concrete-representation-abstract) learning from the comfort of any device.

Scope Components

Standards

Every STEMscopes Math lesson is built from the ground up to the standards. Chunking information into bite-size pieces, we make our units (called “scopes”) digestible and engaging. On average, a scope takes one to two weeks.

Home

Build your own content knowledge, analyze the standards, and gain an understanding of everything the scope has to offer here in the Home section. This is where you will find all your lesson planning materials so you can facilitate fun, purposeful experiences for your students.

Engage

The Engage section is all about laying the foundation for learning. You begin this section by pre-assessing students and filling knowledge gaps. The Hook then lays out a storyline narrative to establish a purpose for learning and captures students’ attention with real-world connections.

Explore*

This is where students dig into the meat of the content. The Explore section provides scaffolded hands-on activities that build toward mastery of the standards. Each Explore provides prompts for rich mathematical discourse and student reasoning, along with an Exit Ticket. Remember to use each Explore with a real-world independent practice (Show What You Know) before proceeding to the next Explore so that you can adjust instruction, if necessary, based on student misconceptions.

Explain*

Paired with Explore, the Explain section offers a variety of resources that help connect the experiences of the Explore activities to the academic content students need to know. These resources include illustrated vocabulary cards, independent practice, and journal prompts that can be used to support the Explore activities and solidify student learning.

Elaborate*

Workstations are a go! The Elaborate section makes differentiation a cinch with ready-made activities—digital and paper-based games, spiraled review, career connections, literacy connections, and more—perfect for rotations! These activities allow students to continue learning while you make time for small group interventions, reteaching, and independent projects to help both your struggling and advanced learners.

Evaluate

Get the data you need from the assessment tools provided in the Evaluate section. From multiple choice-based assessments to an open-ended reasoning prompt, there’s an evaluation for every student’s learning style. You can also create your own assessments at any time using the Assessment builder tool.

Download Sample

Intervention

Useful during Elaborate or as an after-school support, Intervention contains a small hands-on activity designed to target students’ conceptual misunderstanding while building their math skills. Did we also mention this is a great re-teach and test prep tool?

Download Sample

Acceleration

Are your students ready to go above and beyond with what they’ve just learned? In the Acceleration section, students can engage in a design challenge or relate what they’re learning to current events around the world—activities that prompt them to think more deeply about the content and its applications.
