The IMAP (Integrating Mathematics and Pedagogy) Searchable DVD features a unique collection of over three hundred video clips, images, and resources which capture a range of K-5 school children’s mathematical reasoning and demonstrate prominent aspects of the children’s solutions. Designed to support professional development (PD) facilitators and math coaches, these materials, when used in PD settings, give teachers the opportunity to consider the mathematics and grapple with issues of mathematics teaching and learning as they arise in the context of children’s thinking. Proven to enhance teacher reflection and promote growth in teachers’ content knowledge of mathematics, these videos foster better understanding of the ways students approach problem-solving; illustrate the unique and creative ways children think mathematically; and underscore the importance of precise language and questioning in the teaching of mathematics.
The video medium provides opportunities for us as teachers to be critically reflective–we can see our actions in others; enables us to watch many examples of instruction in non-threatening ways; provides us opportunities to see that children’s approaches to mathematics and mathematical thinking differ from adults’ approaches; raises expectations of what students can do; and enables us to model questioning techniques in a safe way.
What makes the IMAP an indispensable resource?

IMAP Integrating Mathematics and Pedagogy:
Searchable Collection of Children's-Mathematical-Thinking Video Clips
One of the most beautiful and powerful experiences teachers have is to observe children making sense of mathematics. But frequently the instruction children receive in the classroom differs greatly from the intuitive mathematical reasoning they bring with them to school. Professional development built around understanding children’s thinking empowers teachers to create rich instructional environments that promote mathematical inquiry and understanding, leading to documented improvement in student achievement. Using children’s mathematical thinking in professional development contexts can motivate and promote growth in teachers’ content knowledge of mathematics and hone their ability to guide each child’s development of foundational knowledge and deep understandings.
Enhance and support your mathematics professional development workshops and courses with the IMAP Integrating Mathematics and Pedagogy: Searchable Collection of Children's-Mathematical-Thinking Video Clips, a DVD offering over 200interviews of individual children as well as several clips of a small group of children or a whole class. . Designed to support any elementary mathematics professional development program or coursework, facilitators, instructors, and math coaches will find this unique searchable collection of video (and related artifacts) invaluable. This DVD features:
The accompanying Facilitator's Guide provides philosophy and context for using the DVD materials, a detailed appendix of all clips and their descriptions, search terms, and related materials as well as guidance for staff developers, coaches and instructors to integrate the video clips (with specific examples) into a variety of teacher learning activities.
