Discovering Algebra is a rigorous algebra curriculum incorporating problem solving, real-world applications, conceptual understanding, and mathematics as sense making to ensure that students develop algebra skills in a meaningful and retrievable way.

Its careful balance of conceptual and procedural understanding supports the notion that students should not only know a mathematical procedure, but be able to justify why it works.

Discovering Algebra provides:

  • A balanced approach to algebraic instruction that’s based in real-world situations and applications
  • Comprehensive lesson plans that incorporate the four-step LISA (Launch, Investigate, Summarize, and Apply) model, a research-based framework for teaching content while cultivating mathematical practices.
  • Newly enhanced eBooks for students and teachers are embedded with graphing technology by
  • Digital Dynamic Algebra Explorations that provide interactive models for key mathematical concepts
  • Free digital Problem Strings ancillary
