Laura Devaney, Managing Editor writes, "Our Site of the Week helps teachers and students address Common Core requirements in algebra 1. The course uses real-world examples, videos, interactive content, and feedback to help engage students as they move through the mathematical content. The course addresses the Common Core's focus on greater emphasis on mathematical reasoning, rigor, and balance."

SAS Curriculum Pathways has launched a free Algebra 1 course that provides teachers and students with all the required content to address the Common Core State Standards for Algebra. Available online, the course engages students through real-world examples, images, animations, videos and targeted feedback. Teachers can integrate individual components or use the entire course as the foundation for their Algebra 1 curriculum.
SAS developed the Algebra 1 course in collaboration with the North Carolina Virtual Public School, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, and the Triangle High Five Algebra Readiness Initiative, an organization that promotes the important role mathematics teachers play in preparing students for college and careers. 

Each lesson in the Algebra 1 course has four sections:

  • Get Ready – introduction.
  • Learn – instructional content with interactive components and guided practice.
  • Practice – additional problems to confirm the learning.
  • Review – summary, including printable materials.

    Free Webinar: Beyond the LMS - 21st Century Learning Systems

    Posted: 16 Aug 2012 12:13 AM PDT

    Check out this FREE online webinar below.

    Join us for a Webinar on September 12

    Wednesday, September 12, 2012
    2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

    There is an ever-increasing resistance to LMS-based eLearning within leading corporations and government agencies. Learners are tired of sitting through 160 slides of content. Managers are tired of people taking eLearning and not having skills to do their job. Business owners are beginning to relegate eLearning to simple compliance ("so we can say we did it") courses. They all have valid concerns.

    In this interesting and informative webinar, you will learn how about how 21st century learning systems can:

    - Support true instruction, not just presentation of content
    - Go beyond multiple choice quizzes to measure the impact of learning on the job,
    - Integrate social media in both formal and informal learning programs
    - Converge with knowledge management in creating performance support systems

    After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Webinar.
