Integrating Fluency Practice, Mathematics, Volume 1
According to the National Research Council (2001), mathematical fluency allows students to carry out procedures with flexibility, accuracy, efficiency, and appropriateness. It is a key component of mathematical proficiency, especially when combined with conceptual understanding, strategic competence, reasoning, and a productive disposition or the inclination to see oneself as able to learn mathematics.
This supplemental resource features collections of fluency activities supporting instruction aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. Activities are designed to engage students while increasing mathematical proficiency, including computational and procedural fluency. Each fluency practice activity takes approximately 10 minutes to facilitate as a regular part of daily mathematics core instruction, intervention, or tutoring sessions.
Each activity includes tasks or prompts for the teacher to use when implementing the activity with students. Display pages are provided for most tasks. The teacher may choose to display the tasks using a digital projection device for whole class display, print copies for small group display, or print copies for individual students. The tasks or prompts provide a starting place for these activities. Teachers are encouraged to supplement the tasks or prompts based on the needs of the students and available time.
ENGAGING MATHEMATICS, VOLUME 1
Warming up, working collaboratively, supporting learning retention, or formatively assessing—your choice!
The Engaging Mathematics Volume I series provides meaningful activities and problem-solving situations that can be used as warm-ups, engage activities for teacherdeveloped lessons, support for retention of skills and concepts, or short formative assessments. Included are hands-on activities, rigorous problem-solving situations, vocabulary development activities, and writing prompts. Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) student expectations are addressed in a variety of formats.
Volume I is an updated version of the original Engaging Mathematics series. Each activity has been aligned to its corresponding grade-level TEKS, and some new activities have been added to each grade level. Volume I serves as a complement to Volume II.
Currently available for Kindergarten, grades 1-7, Geometry and Algebra II. Grade 8 and Algebra I coming soon. $45 per grade level.
- Student Editions are available for Kindergarten - Grade 5. $350 for a set of 30.
Engaging Mathematics is also available in Spanish for Kindergarten – Grade 5. $70 per grade level.
- Student Editions in Spanish are also available for Kindergarten – Grade 5. $350 for a set of 30.

ACCELERATED INTERVENTION, ALGEBRA I
When time is short and needs are great, this resource provides focused acceleration of learning and relearning.
How do we reteach students who have already experienced all the interventions we have to offer? How do we focus learning on targeted areas of need when students have already received instruction? We take a deeper dive into the mathematics with a narrower focus. Each module in this series has three lessons that offer these deep dives. Each module also has a fourth lesson that brings understanding to the surface by connecting the mathematics learned and relearned in the first three lessons. Available in four modules. $25 per module.
