- Do The Math Now!
Do The Math Now! provides comprehensive support for math teachers and students and was designed to support teachers in understanding and delivering effective math instruction. The program, which is organized into two volumes, includes everything that teachers need to focus on teaching and everything students need so they can keep their focus on learning.
The Teacher Bookcase provides easy organization and access to all of the teaching materials and professional resources.
Do The Math Now! includes two teacher guides: Multiplication & Division for Units 1–5 and Fraction Fundamentals for Units 6–10. The Teacher Guides were developed to support teachers in understanding and delivering effective math instruction. They provide educators with all of the information needed for preparing to teach the lessons, step-by-step teaching instructions, guidance for monitoring student progress, and ideas for differentiation.
The Teacher Guide includes 4 categories of built-in teaching support:
- Supporting Instruction provides tips for addressing common student misconceptions
- Connecting to Algebra explains how content strategies, activities, and concepts are integral to success in algebra
- Language and Development provides ways to support English language learners
- Mathematics Background provides content support to explain a concept further or relate a concept to other mathematical topics
Embedded teaching support helps teachers meet individual student needs and provides guidance for effective and easily managed teaching. READ LESS...

The TeacherSpace contains Unit Assessments, Additional Practice, Home Connections, and reproducibles.
Do The Math Now! is organized into two comprehensive volumes that support student growth and foster engagement. Do The Math Now! materials include:
Multiplication & Division WorkSpace
WorkSpace assignments are designed to support students’ transition to independent work and help teachers monitor students’ progress with Multiplication & Division.
Fraction Fundamentals WorkSpace
WorkSpace gives students the opportunity to apply their conceptual understanding of fractions and transition to independent work. Teachers monitor progress as student estimate, add, and subtract fractions.
Student Materials Bags
Hands-on learning and game materials are provided in zippered mesh bags. Each bag contains materials for eight students.
Do The Math Now! includes frequent and strategically placed formative and summative assessments that both encourage and support students every step of the way. Suggestions for differentiating instruction are included for students still struggling and for those ready for a challenge.
Do The Math Now! lessons include embedded assessments to provide a constant window into student performance and progress. Through the questions included in the Teacher’s Guides and opportunities for students to share their strategies, both verbally and in the WorkSpace pages, teachers are able to continually monitor students’ developing skills and understanding.
Every fifth lesson is an opportunity to monitor student progress and provide differentiated instruction. Show What You Know assessments follow the same format as the WorkSpace pages, so that students aren’t faced with new directions, new words, and new ways of recording.
ProgressSpace is an online assessment and reporting tool for students, teachers, and administrators. ProgressSpace is designed to help teachers increase efficiency, inform instruction, and measure student growth. ProgressSpace offers Beginning- and End- of Volume Assessment, which can serve as a placement tool and benchmark progress. As students progress through the program, they complete the Beginning-of-Unit Assessment as a pre-unit snapshot of what they know. The End-of-Unit Assessment measures student growth when compared with performance on the Beginning-of-Unit Assessment.
