CGI Math


  • Support students to solve problems using their own strategies
  • Adapt instruction so that all students learn with understanding
  • Develop students’ identities as mathematicians capable of generating their own ideas and reasoning about the ideas of others


Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) is a student-centered approach to teaching math. It starts with what your students already know and builds on their natural number sense and intuitive approaches to problem solving. CGI teachers start with what students know and build on their intuitive problem-solving processes so that each and every student grows in their understanding of rigorous math concepts. Research shows that CGI increases: students’ math achievement, students’ problem-solving experiences and teachers’ math knowledge. This course is designed so that teachers meet the needs of their students and make connections between research on children’s thinking and their State Math Standards. This course is appropriate for all K-12 school professionals.
