Algebra? There's an App for That: Florida Goes Online with Math Support for Teachers and Students

Journal of Staff Development, v37 n4 p35-39 Aug 2016
The transition to Common Core State Standards for Mathematics has created a need for high-quality professional learning on content and pedagogy. This is especially true for algebra 1 teachers in Florida, where students must pass a standards-based exam as a requirement to earning a high school diploma. Time, distance, and cost constraints can get in the way. To address those challenges, the University of Florida's Lastinger Center for Learning and Study Edge, an educational technology company, developed an online teaching and learning system for algebra teachers and students. This system, called Algebra Nation, launched throughout Florida in spring 2013. Funded by the Florida Legislature,the program partners with students, teachers, administrators, parents, political leaders, and local communities to develop and deliver personalized professional learning.
