In every Imagine Learning program, students experience
    • Research-based, standards-aligned instruction
    • Adaptive learning paths that meet each student where they are
    • Rigorous content that challenges students to grow
    • Motivational elements (games, avatars, reward points, and experiences)

    Zearn (These accounts are set up individually.)
    Zearn Math is a coherent and rigorous K-5 curriculum delivered in a personalized rotational model. With Zearn Math, students learn in two ways: Independent Digital Lessons and Small Group Instruction. During Independent Digital Lessons, students learn at their own pace with digital manipulatives, paper and pencil transfer, and precise digital feedback at the moment of misconception. In Small Group Instruction, students work with concrete manipulatives, explain and share their math reasoning, and get direct feedback from their teachers and peers. Combined, every student has a daily personalized learning experience.
