Algebra Readiness & Differentiated InstructionOct. 28, 2009
Districts across the national are raising their graduation requirements to now requiring students to pass Algebra I and in some cases even Algebra II. Helping students to become prepared for Algebra has become a high concern for many educators and a problematic topic for many on how this can be attained for all their unique students’ needs. Join us for this session to hear more about how an algebra readiness implementation can help all students to be prepared to pass algebra and how differentiating instruction across students' unique learning abilities can help all students to learn the math they need to graduate from high school.
