Edgenuity launches standards-aligned Algebra I course
- Edgenuity on Monday launched a new interactive Algebra I course that aligns with college and career readiness standards, like the Common Core.
- The course also uses student and educator feedback to keep students engaged and learning, and according to a press release, the company particularly focused on how to make the material accessible for all students.
- For example, the on-screen teachers think aloud, a guiding question helps refine focus and promote inquiry on each lesson, problems are based on user skill and contain interactive features, and some tasks also utilize real-world applications. Research conducted with partner schools was used to increase the efficacy of these tools.
This course follows Edgenuity's EDDIE Award-winning middle and high school English Language Arts courses, which are also aligned to new college and career-readiness standards nationwide. As far as why Algebra I is the latest subject tackled by the online and blended learning solutions provider, the higher-level math skills learned at that level are the building blocks for high school and college success.
