Instructional Routines

Information about two key instructional routines, Contemplate then Calculate & Connecting Representations, in the New Visions math curriculum.


Instructional Routines are “designs for interaction that organize classroom instruction”. Read more about routines here.
Students share noticings from a quick flash of an image. From these noticings, students work together to create, share, and study shortcuts to solve a problem, and finally they reflect on their learning.
Students work together to make matches between given sets of representations, then create a representation for an unmatched representation. Finally, they reflect on their learning.
We also use Three Reads, Three Acts, Card Sorts, Problem Strings, and Revisiting Ideas in our curriculum. This page contains some of the resources we have for these routines.
These activities are not content-specific, but contain literacy supports and engagement supports for structuring partner work, small group work, or whole class discussions.
