With rigorous support for teachers and real-world contexts that help students understand new ideas, these courses prepare students to be successful in Algebra I and beyond.
Middle school mathematics courses for grades 6, 7, and 8 provide powerful foundations in ratios, proportionality, and algebraic and geometric thinking. Students use graphing technology, manipulatives, and other mathematical tools to develop conceptual understanding as they tackle and solve interesting problems. Throughout these courses, students will:
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 manage their demanding workloads, improve 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.
