This document focuses on Core Algebra, a course offered in the Hawaii State Department of Education's "Mathematics Program Guide." This algebra option is designed to be less theoretical and more application-oriented than Algebra IA and IB. The text opens with a list of twenty minimum learner objectives of the course. The next section presents an analysis of some of the text materials currently available that address these objectives. These are categorized into four types. An example of each type is listed and given a one-page review, with all four texts analyzed in a table. Four suggested supplementary materials are compared in a second table and are briefly reviewed. The bulk of this document is a sample Core Algebra course, based on the "Basic Algebra" textbook published by Houghton Mifflin Company. A course outline, suggested time schedule, vocabulary, comments on instructional strategies, and suggested assignments are provided. Student worksheets, quizzes, and tests are also included, with instructional objectives given for lessons requiring supplementary worksheets. (MP)
