Is your district looking for mathematics materials to support blended learning? Take a look at Learning List’s reviews of Agile Mind Texas Mathematics for grades 6-8.
Agile Mind’s Texas Mathematics is a comprehensive math program for students in grades 6-8. The program enables students to interact with content in a variety of ways while addressing individual learning needs. The material is available in print and digital forms, and is intended to support TEKS-based instruction.
Agile Mind Texas Mathematics focuses instruction on student learning of mathematical concepts and skills that require higher level thinking. The material includes consistent opportunities for students to develop conceptual understanding of mathematics and provides numerous, current real-world applications of math.
The instructional cycle is designed to transition students from concrete to representational, and finally to abstract learning. Students participate in “hands-on” activities, computer-enhanced simulations, and more traditional activities such as activity sheets and answering multiple-choice questions.
Agile Mind also integrates social and emotional learning, focused on productive struggle and growth mindset, to support persistence and love of learning.
See Learning List’s Alignment Report for detailed information about Agile Mind’s alignment to the TEKS for grades 6 through 8 mathematics. Learning List has also completed a qualitative review of the instructional content for each grade level covered by this material and a review of the material’s technology compatibility.

About Agile Mind*
Our mission is to transform the teaching and learning of middle and high school math and science. We help education systems equip all students for success in higher education and the careers beyond.
The work of Agile Mind is designed to equip educators to engage all students in deep learning of your standards, support teachers in best practice, and do so in a way that is accessible and scalable in all classrooms, every day, for every student. Our programs foster classrooms in which all students can access key mathematics’ concepts, embrace challenging work, persist through failure, and succeed.
Foundational to the Dana Center/Agile Mind mathematics programs are these principles: that all students, regardless of their life circumstances, need and deserve access to challenging curricula every day, and that all teachers need and deserve tools and data that help them address the changing demands of the accountability landscape and the varied experiences their students bring. *Information in this section is provided by or adapted from Agile Mind.
