Individualized Math Project: Focus on Algebra
Project design: a one year planning grant to explore a blended, individualized algebra class with the following components:
- The creation of user-friendly platform that provides excellent online resources in a variety of formats organized around common core standards. Students will have access to this platform in class and at home. Students will build up skills or accelerate through material, using learning formats--e.g. instructional demonstrations, games etc.--that match their learning preferences.
- The creation of a similar platform for teachers that evaluates, collects, and organizes online resources for whole or small group instruction.
- Strategies for teachers to use these online resources to design flexible, student-centered classrooms.
Funding for the project is provided by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
