Algebra I provides a powerful method for describing interdependence and change—two ideas that are essential to understanding mathematics, often called the language of science. Throughout the Algebra I course, students will:
Students need a sound understanding of functions and their multiple representations. Algebra I provides that, and is widely accepted as an essential foundation not just for higher-level mathematics but for the knowledge required for participation in our democracy and for a successful economic life.
Our research-based approach to instruction deepens students’ commitment to learning, encouraging their effort and persistence in the face of academic challenge.
Our curriculum includes:
In addition to Internet-delivered services, educators and administrators also receive face-to-face seminars, mentoring, and high-quality support materials to help them manage their demanding workloads, enhance their expertise, and dramatically improve outcomes for their students.
Supports for teachers include:

Our mathematics and academic youth programs are developed in collaboration with the Charles A. Dana Center at The University of Texas at Austin. Working with leading educators throughout the country, we have developed mathematics programs for middle school, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Precalculus, Calculus, and AP Statistics. These programs build on the Dana Center’s trusted work with more than 100,000 teachers over the past decade and on the core belief that all students can succeed in mathematics if given the opportunity.
