This study assessed the effects of the "Rocket Math" program on the math fluency skills of a first grade student at risk for school failure. The student received instruction in the "Rocket Math" program over 6 months. He was assessed using a pre- and posttest curriculum-based measurement (CBM) and individualized fluency checkouts within the program. On the CBM pretest, he completed 10 problems correct in 1 minute. On the CBM posttest, he finished 21 problems correct in 1 minute. On the "Rocket Math" fluency checks, the student's problems correct per minute increased from 19 (Level A on first assessment) to 26 (Level M on third assessment session). He had few errors and averaged 23.1 problems correct per minute on the fluency checks. Implications for further research are discussed. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
