Agile Mind curriculum for grades 6, 7, and 8 takes students from elementary arithmetic up through increasingly powerful concepts and skills that demand higher levels of thinking. Students:
- Strengthen their understanding of key mathematical operations and use equivalent fractions as a basis for understanding ratios and proportional reasoning
- Begin formal work with expressions and equations as they use variables to represent relationships and solve problems
- Develop their understanding of variables from two perspectives—as placeholders for specific values and as sets of values represented in algebraic relationships
- Gain fluency with geometric concepts, such as area, surface area, and volume

Integrating SEL with challenging mathematics
In addition to our middle school mathematics curriculum programs, districts can connect SEL to mathematics with Academic Youth Development (AYD). These programs leverage the latest research on student mindset, motivation, learning, and persistence and prompt students to apply new SEL skills to mathematics content foundational to grade-level success.
Top rated programs
Our middle school math programs are top rated by EdReports.org, meeting expectations for all gateways at all grade levels.
Comprehensive teacher support
Daily, job-embedded supports for teachers enable flexible lessons, with tools and guidance to engage a whole class, small groups, and individual students.
