Targeted Intervention to Help Your Struggling Students Pass Algebra

Algebra City is a mathematics intervention program created especially to help students build an understanding of key concepts, procedures, and representations needed to master and pass Algebra I. When traditional texts frequently can be “a mile wide and an inch deep,” Algebra City encourages students to delve deeply into the most critical content: the 28 common misconceptions where students have the most difficulties in algebra. Each of the four Student Editions covers seven of these misconceptions.

Engages the Learner

Motivating graphic-novel elements encourage students to make algebraic connections and uncover relationships with multiple representations and mathematical models. Students construct meaning through carefully scaffolded examples, engaging discussions, purposeful writing, and links to real-world connections.

Provides Supports for the Teacher

Algebra City incorporates research-based best practices that clearly link success in Algebra I to the completion of high school, college, and beyond. Materials include:

  • Targeted Assessments to support data-driven decision making
  • Robust delivery instructions with point-of-use references to engage students in active instruction
  • Structured learning interactions that integrate the learning environment, students’ working memory, and students’ long-term memory
  • Questions to scaffold effective classroom discussions, lesson extensions, problem rationales, and additional practice
  • Integration of the Common Core State Standards into each unit
  • Strategies for Differentiation focused on struggling students and English language learners

Flexibility in Program Delivery

Targeted instruction enables Algebra City to be used in inclusion settings, individualized or small-group instruction, tutoring, double-period or shadow classes, and summer school.
