  • Description

Aim for Algebra was developed at WestEd by experts in the field of mathematics education.

The program is a coherent set of materials, conceptual in nature, rather than a collection of individual worksheets on isolated topics.

Our curriculum focuses on key "trouble spots" in algebra that typically cause difficulty because:* students lack prerequisites,

* students have misconceptions about the content, or

* the material is complex and students need more time and practice with the topic.

Aim for Algebra is a standards-aligned, concept-based support curriculum developed by WestEd with funding from the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciencesunder PR/Award #R305K040003.
