## Environments in Imagine Math

Imagine Math is delineated into **two student environments, Imagine Math PreK-2 **and** Imagine Math 3+**. The environment to which a student is assigned is based on their **rostered grade level**. It opens when the student logs into Imagine Math, and they will not be able to view or enter the other environment.

## Environment Assignment/Restrictions

When a student is created in Imagine Math, they are assigned based on their rostered grade level to either **PreK-2 **or **Grade 3+**.

Students assigned to Imagine Math PreK-2 display an **Environment** of **Blueprint **in their account in the educator portal.

Students assigned to Imagine Math 3+ display an **Environment** of **Imagine Math**.

Once a student's account has been created, their environment **cannot be changed **within the educator portal. After students begin using Imagine Math, if you feel that the other environment is more appropriate for a particular student, a **new account must be created** for that student, and **no data from the old account will transfer over** to the new one.

- If your school rosters students manually, you must create a new account for the student by assigning them a
**grade level that matches the new environment**even though it is not their actual rostered grade. You may then delete the old account after first saving a copy of the Student Progress report and any other data you wish to refer to later. - If you use a Student Information System such as Clever or ClassLink to manage student accounts, contact Imagine Learning Product Support for assistance in moving individual students between environments.

Generally speaking, Imagine Learning **does not recommend** changing a student's environment. Some possible exceptions are:

**Excelling**Grade 2 students who have reached or are approaching third-grade Math content. Although Imagine Math 3+ does contain some second-grade content, it isn't nearly as robust as the second-grade content for Imagine Math PreK-2. The second-grade content in Imagine Math 3+ is better suited as remediation for struggling Grade 3 students, for whom it will be inserted in their pathway as precursor lessons. Be sure your student has mastered nearly all second-grade content before enrolling them in the Imagine Math 3+ environment.- Students enrolled in Imagine Math 3+ who
**require extra support for foundational math skills**. Students who continue to test below grade level may be better-suited to the Imagine Math PreK-2 environment. If the student speaks**Spanish**, switching them to Imagine Math PreK-2 offers an additional advantage because the PreK-2 environment is fully available in Spanish.

For Grade 2 students who have **finished the Imagine Math PreK-2 curriculum**, we recommend supplementing the students' learning with offline materials such as printables from Imagine Math 3+ and the Grade 3 Application Tasks in lieu of moving students between environments. You can deduce if a student has completed all PreK-2 lessons from the Student Progress report.
