Social Network Specifically for Algebra Teachers

Join the Algebra for All (A4A) Social Network and:

  • Connect with mathematics teachers around the world focused on the teaching of Algebra;
  • Use the Lesson Sharing Area to gather resources for your classroom;
  • Use the 30 instructional applets directly with your students;
  • Share lessons, ideas, and successes with other teachers;
  • Access many Calculator Tutorials for you or your students;

The Algebra 4 All (A4A) Social Network is an online community of educators committed to sharing resources and supporting one another in the practice of teaching Algebra. The Network was created by Michigan Virtual University (MVU) to support teachers involved in the state-wide Algebra for All professional development project. The A4A Social Network in now public, has a world-wide membership, and remains a relevant and viable resource for any mathematics educator.

Introduction

The National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) released a set of state-led education standards, the Common Core State Standards. The English-language arts and mathematics standards for grades K-12 were developed in collaboration with a variety of stakeholders including content experts, states, teachers, school administrators and parents. The standards establish clear and consistent goals for learning that will prepare America's children for success in college and work.

The release of the standards marks the conclusion of the development of the Common Core State Standards and signals the start of the adoption and implementation process by the states. The year-long process was led by governors and chief state school officers in 48 states, 2 territories and the District of Columbia. The final standards were informed by nearly 10,000 public comments and by standards in other top performing countries so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy.

These standards define the knowledge and skills students should have within their K-12 education careers so that they will graduate high school fully prepared for college and careers. The standards are:

  • Aligned with college and work expectations;
  • Clear, understandable and consistent;
  • Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills; Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards;
  • Informed by other top performing countries, so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society; and
  • Evidence and research-based.

In the coming months, each state will follow its own procedures and processes for adoption of the Common Core State Standards. The NGA Center and CCSSO recognize that meaningful and effective implementation of the Common Core State Standards is critical to achieving these goals. To that end, the two organizations are continuing to work closely with a range of partners on how to best support states and districts as they move from adoption to implementation.
