The Connecticut State Department of Education
has released the Algebra 1 Model Curriculum
! This remarkable collection of instructional materials required many years of research and development, an intensive, 3-year field study involving teachers and students from all over CT, and countless grant-funded and volunteer hours of writing, revising, and compiling. The accompanying assessments will be made available to Connecticut teachers through a district representative. Access to the materials
is through a Moodle site; directions can be found here
