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.
