This collection of courses includes all of the units of Geogebra's Illustrative Mathematics Middle School Math curricula. These courses will work in Moodle, Canvas, Schoology,and D2L. It is not necessary to create an account on MoodleNet in order to download the courses. Just click on the name of the course and it will download. Each course is one unit of the curricula; there are nine units for each of the 6th, 7th and 8th Grades. The courses are designed for distance learning, but these new LMS courses will work great in face 2 face classes, too.
At their own pace and time, students will be able to continue their Zoom, Google Meet, or Microsoft Teams online synchronous lessons to collaborate and work in groups. The increased communication between teachers and students will build community by enabling students to communicate with their teacher and each other using video, chat, audio, or photos. The courses expand assessment options synced to student information systems. Parents appreciate the links to the extensive Illustrative Mathematics material provided for parents. The LMS courses give teachers quick access to extensive narratives that describe the mathematical work that will unfold in each lesson in every unit.
