2022 Textbook Excellence Award Winner

Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 series wins the "Texty" award

"Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 make up an outstanding series together, making the math content come alive, via a plethora of colorful pictures sprinkled in on each page, as well as short snapshots of individual National Geographic Explorers, whose research connects the math content introduced in each chapter."

"This series creates a consistent pathway for students as they journey through these courses. Students engage through the online learning environment which includes real world connections, enrichment, and remediation when necessary while teachers have the ability to evaluate understanding by tracking student success rate, error analysis, and ability to express their understanding through mathematical writing."


STEM Connections

Featuring National Geographic Explorers

Students meet a National Geographic Explorer at the beginning of each chapter to learn how they apply mathematics in their profession with an Everyday Explorations video.

Throughout each chapter, students develop their mathematical skills by following the Explorer’s research and creating STEM connections. This culminates in an end-of-chapter Performance Task to keep students connecting math to the real world.

Highest-Impact Teaching Strategies

Many of the things we do as educators have a positive effect on student learning, but which ones have the greatest impact? The Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 program purposefully integrates five key strategies proven to have the highest impact on student achievement.

In his Visible Learning research, Professor John Hattie identified more than 250 influences on student learning and developed a way of ranking them. He conducted meta-analyses and compared the influences by their effect size — the impact the factor had on student learning.
