Our research team at Education Development Center and Boston College is leading a four-year study investigating the impact of algebra support models and curriculum resources on student achievement and opinions about mathematics. The study addresses the urgent and persistent need for effective, evidence-based approaches to prepare all students for success in algebra.
Currently, we are looking for interested high schools that currently offer full-year algebra support courses that are taken concurrently with Algebra 1. High schools that participate in the study will receive:
- A free professional development workshop focused on developing students’ algebraic habits of mind, facilitated by the authors of Making Sense of Algebra and the Transition to Algebra program at EDC;
- $300 stipends for participating teachers; and
- Making Sense of Algebra teacher resource books.
