M^Power A Path to Understanding Algebra” was created with the purpose of supporting students who struggle to grasp the concepts and skills required for developing confidence and competence in mathematics. This instructional program employs effective strategies to achieve this goal.
The M^Power curriculum comprises four main components for each lesson. The “Get Started” section includes a task that serves as a review of previously learned material, a problem-solving task, or an advance organizer for introducing new content. In the “Share” section, there is a recommended instructional strategy for discussing homework, with detailed explanations provided in the appendix. The “Explore” section is the heart of the lesson, providing students with an opportunity to engage with a mathematical topic. The aim of these tasks is to foster high levels of engagement, promote the development of conceptual understanding, and offer various points of entry so that the tasks are accessible to all students. Finally, in the “Reflect” section, the big ideas and new concepts from the lesson are summarized.
The Teacher Notes include step-by-step guidelines for teachers on how to lead the activities in each unit, along with suggested questions that can be used to enhance and extend students’ understanding of the material.
