Algebra Extension utilizes a research based math intervention curriculum designed to provide targeted support for students to cross the bridge from arithmetic to algebra. This course will both support and extend the work students do in Algebra I through the development of mathematical habits of the mind. Algebra Extension is aligned with the tiers of the Response to Intervention model. Placement into this course will be based upon District mathematics assessments. Students will receive 1.0 elective credit upon completion of this two semester course (0.5 credit each semester). Students will be co-enrolled in Algebra I.
