This is a course outline for Algebra 1, designed by Ann Shannon & Associates, LLC for the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation. This unit provides students with an opportunity to engage in meaningful mathematical investigations, drawing heavily on the eight Mathematical Practices. The objective is to help students understand the importance of seeing, doing, re-constructing, and supposing in learning mathematics.
In the first part of our Progress in Action campaign, we highlighted inspiring stories of educators who collaborate with their peers, ask their students for feedback on their teaching, and try new approaches to help all students succeed.
