Illustrative Mathematics Curriculum

During the 2022-2023 school year, Odyssey's middle school math classes transitioned to Illustrative Mathematics.

"IM 6–8 Math is a problem-based core curriculum rooted in content and practice standards to foster learning and achievement for all. Students learn by doing math, solving problems in mathematical and real-world contexts, and constructing arguments using precise language. Math lessons are designed with a focus on independent, group, and whole-class instruction. This format builds mathematical understanding and fluency for all students."
