The Intensified Algebra I program responds to an urgent request from members of the Urban Mathematics Leadership Network (UMLN), an organization of mathematics leaders in 25 of the nation’s largest school districts. Mathematics directors and superintendents from UMLN districts identified the high failure rate in 9th-grade algebra classes as their top mathematics priority and called for development of a program to address this need.
Developed through a deep collaboration of the Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas at Austin, the Learning Sciences Research Institute at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Agile Mind, and leading educators throughout the country, Intensified Algebra I is funded with support from the National Science Foundation, the Searle Funds of the Chicago Community Trust, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
