The Ready Mathematics program addresses the Common Core’s focus on conceptual understanding and procedural fluency. It emphasizes mathematical reasoning, modeling and the structure of mathematics, according to the program brochure. Additionally, Ready Teacher Support extends support to teachers, with lesson-specific pacing guides and embedded best-practice teaching tips in every lesson, including English language learner (ELL) support, error alerts, conceptual extensions and vocabulary strategies.

“Ready Central was created to meet the unique needs of our educators,” said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates, in a prepared statement. “The portal’s wide range of support and professional learning resources helps teachers, principals, and administrators ensure successful implementation and ongoing use of Ready Mathematics as part of their blended learning program.”

Now available on the portal is “100 Questions that Promote Mathematical Discourse,” a resource that helps promote mathematical thinking and discourse in the classroom. There are also tips and strategies available for how to use i-Ready, a K–12 adaptive diagnostic for mathematics and reading that can be used in conjunction with the Ready Mathematics program.

Current Ready users can use the portal now on the Ready Central site.
