Intensified Algebra I

Struggling students need a powerful combination of additional time, a challenging curriculum, and cohesive, targeted supports and interventions. Agile Mind provides tools and teaching supports to help students stay on track, graduate on time, and gain passage to advanced learning. 

Agile Mind’s Intensified Algebra I program is a blended program that integrates a comprehensive, engaging mathematics curriculum with interventions for struggling learners to motivate and develop students’ positive beliefs about their academic abilities. To learn more, visit the Intensified Algebra I program page.

Transform beliefs and behaviors

Social and emotional learning constructs are integrated within our Intensified curriculum. This groundbreaking program melds best practices in math instruction with advances in psychology and in research on struggling learners to shape students’ engagement, confidence, and commitment to challenging academic programs. Students are motivated. Teachers are energized. And parents see for their children a future where success is achievable.

Learn more about the social, emotional, and academic development principles behind our Intensified programs.

Blended learning Approach

Our programs appear in a “blended” format, meaning that some essential materials are provided online and others in print. The online curriculum can be shared with an entire class by being projected. In this model, all that is needed is a computer, access to the Internet, and a projection device. In settings with access to shared computers or tablets, students can work online at the direction of their teacher.

In addition to the online materials, print resources are also available:

  • Student Activity Sheets are used by students in the classroom daily and for nightly homework. The sheets can be downloaded as pdfs from the online system or purchased as consumable workbooks.
  • Teachers receive a printed Advice for Instruction book with guidance for teaching each day with Agile Mind. The Advice for Instruction resources are also available online.

Other Agile Mind Programs

Academic Youth Development (AYD)

AYD connects students’ social and emotional learning (SEL) to challenges in school. More students succeed in school, career, and life when they learn skills that support their social and emotional development and then explicitly connect those skills to their academic learning.

This suite of programs translates the latest research on student mindset, motivation, learning, and persistence into practical classroom strategies and tools that can be enacted every day, in every classroom, to produce a lasting impact on every student. To learn more, visit the Academic Youth Development program page.

Agile Accelerator

Agile Accelerator provides supplemental instructional and assessment resources for math and science that support a variety of learners across multiple grade levels. Interactive animations and simulations of key concepts and practice and assessment resources aligned to your standards equip educators to monitor progress and ensure all students are meeting expectations. To learn more, visit the Agile Accelerator program page.
