Making Connections

Making Connections: Foundations for Algebra, Course 1 is the first of a two-year sequence of courses designed to prepare students for a rigorous college preparatory algebra course. It uses a problem-based approach with concrete models. The course helps students to develop multiple strategies to solve problems and to recognize the connections between concepts. The lessons in the course embed the "Mathematical Practices" of the Common Core State Standards released in June 2010.
